RICE-J0RMAN 
BUYS CIRCUS TITLE 

It has been announced that the 
Rice-Dorman Shows, at the close of 
the 1920 season, on November 20, 
will be sold as m going enterprise, 
and if not sold will be auctioned, 
piecemeal, on November 23. The 
paraphernalia to be sold is to con- 
sist of twenty-one cars, forty-one 
wagons, four rides, and all , tents, 
fronts and lights belonging to the 
organization. The shows play Chick- 
asha, Oib, this week- 
It is understood that the manage- 
ment of the shows has secured one 
of the best circus titles and a com* 
plete circus, which H will operate 
next season. 

In response to a wire to W. H. 
Rice, asking for details of the deal, 
he sent the following reply, "Ao* 
count business reason can not grva 
details regarding show until later." 



Xew York, Sept, 22. — Yesterday in 
the V. S. District Court of the South- 
ern District of New York Judge Man-' 
ton handed down his decision In the 
case of the Shuberts vs. Rath Bros. 
By its terms the Raths will have to 
play out their contract with the Shu- 
berts, Judge . .Manton holding that 
they were properly, notified of the ex- 
ercise of the option on their services 
contained in their contract. It was 
the contention of the Raths that th:s 
optjon was not properly exercised, 
and because of this they went to 
work on the Ziegfeld Roof. While 
working there the Shuberts applied 
for a restraining order and injunction 
to oompel'the Rath Brothers to live 
OP to their contract with them. 

The decision, which is printed in 
full below, contains important matter 
for the theatrical profession at large. 
The Billboard recommends a careful 
reading of It by all ^managers, agents, 
and particularly all artists:

New York, Sept 37.— Two big amuse-

Palisades Park closed Saturday night 
after a successful season, and Colum- 
bia Park, at North Bergen, N. J., is 
closed, with the exception of Satur-

Columbia Park has had a very suc-

A baby parade was given last night and 
several acts had to be omitted in order 
to furnish room Jor baby exhibits and

New York, Sept, 25.— That the Ac- 
tors' Equity Association intends to 
start a series of meetings to bring 
the subject of the "Equity Shop" be- 
fore its members for discussion, pre- 
paratory to the taking of a referen- 
dum vote on the matter, was an- 
nounced today by Frank Gillmore, 
Executive Secretary of the organiza- 
tion. * 

The first of these meetings will he 
held at the Equity Headquarters in 
this city on Sunday evening, October 
3, at S o'clock. At the meetings 
the members will have the "Equity 
Shop" explained to them and they 
will be given an opportunity to ask 
questions and discuss the matter in 
order that they may thoroly under- 
stand the question before they east 
their ballot for or against the prop- 
osition. 

It is also proposed that similar 
meetings be held in the big theatric- 
al centers, and if this Is done Pres- 
ident John Emerson will preside at 
the meetings in Boston, Philadelphia 
and Chicago. ' 

The meetings are looked on by 
Equity as a form of educational talks 
and by the time the referendum Is 
held It is believed that the member- 
ship will be fully informed on the 
question of "Equity Shop." 

The official Equity announcement 
telling of the plan is as follows: 

"The Equity Shop is a subject 
about which there is a variety of 
opinion. Before the referendum 
vote is taken it is desirable that all 
our members understand the subject, 
and so for educational purposes the 
Council -.has decided to commence a 
frertes of meetings in New York at 
the Headquarters, 115 West 47th 
street, commencing Sunday evening, 
October S. at 8 o'clock. This will 
give all players who happen to - be In 
the metropolis an opportunity to 
come, to listen and to ask questions.

SOUTHERN FAIRS' 
PROSPECTS GOOD 

The fair season in the South is 
just now getting into its stride, and 
prospects are good for a record-: 
breaking year. Leading off tho larger 
Southern fairs, the Tennessee State 
Fair at Nashville opened with 100 
per cent greater attendance than on 
the opening day last year, and the 
record attendance held up thruout 
the week. 

From practically all of the State 
and district fairs come reports that 
every indication points to phonoae- 
enal attendance. Tho reason is net 
far to seek. Crops are fine, fac- 
tories are busy, and, despite the oc- 
casional cry of tho pessimist, the 
business outlook is en coura ging. 
For all of which showmen are du 
thankful.

"The digs difficulty, like a good many other disagreeable things In 
modern life, is always •with us. Generally speaking, lack of accommoda- 
tion is the excuse advanced by landladies for. refusal to let pros, have 
rooms, but the landladies of Earlestown, "Lancashire, have a new reason 
for denying pros, admittance. According to a letter we have Just re- 
ceived from an artiste, one landlady he visited after some hours of digs 
hunting admitted that she had accommodation for one or fifteen, but 
she was 'on strike," her reasons "being that she did not get all the turns 
appearing at the hall every week. This was not ah isolated incident 
either, for, writes our correspondent, he walked around in the rain and 
knocked at half the doors of the town, only to be met with the same re- 
fusal. Apparently each and every one of the landladies in the town was 
•on strike' because each did not get a full house every week. Our cor- 
respondent asks when will it be made compulsory for proprietors when 
building hairs to provide at tho same time accommodation for the pros.?"

MURDOCK VISITS CINCINNATI 

Expresses Optimism Over Outlook for ' 
Season Just Opening 



JT. J. Murdock, general manager of the Keith 
interests, was in Cincinnati last week con- 
ferring with local theatrical men in regard to 
an adjustment of wage scales for certain classes 
of theater employees. In talking to Cincinnati 
newspaper men Mr. Murdock was quite opti- 
mistic over the ontlook for the season Just 
opening. 

"The return to normal/' he said, "guarantees 
first of all a steady supply of new forms of 
vaudeville entertainment. The sources from 
widen original vaudeville acts spring are again 
ia fall operation. With our new system of 
trying out these acts 'on the dog' the public 
in the large cities is required to take no 



Resolved, That during the theatrical season of 1920-1921 and forever 
thereafter, jokes about prohibition shall be strictly prohibited in all pro- 
ductions under our control. 

Such a rule will give the comedians a pain, but will delight the pub- 
lic, of which some want something new to laugh at, while others regard 
prohibition as no laughing matter, and still others deem it rude to laugh 
at the dead. 

--v No doubt comedy teams at present are busily engaged in dusting 
off and remodeling last season's oversupply of prohibition jokes, thinking 
the forgetful and generous public won't recognize them in their disguise. 
. But let them be assured in advance that during the coming season 
no prohibition joke will get more than one-half of one per cent of the 
laugh it got last year. On the contrary, loud applause is in store for the 
comedy team that on making its entrance gives it3 audience a solemn 
pledge that it will not attempt one prohibition joke thruout the perform- 
ance. Such an act should be hailed in the program as "a novelty act of 
striking originality." 

Even the political platforms, -which, according to some, are full of 
jokes and jokers, fail to say a thing about prohibition. — DES MOINES

Denver, Col., Sept. 22.— Celebrating the first 
anniversary or the establishment of the Wil- 
liam Fox Circuit of theaters in Denver, officials 
of that organization have arranged elaborate 1 ' 
programs for the benefit of the Fox patrons, 
and this week is to be a gala affair, according^ 
to the Fox representatives. *> 

All of the Fox houses— the Blvoll, Strand,'' 
lata and Plaza theaters— have been "dressed* 
up" in holiday attire and the theaters have 
been decorated for the occasion from pit to 
dome. 

Louis K. Sidney, manager of the chain of 
bouses, came to Denver from the East, where 
he had long been associated with the picture 
theaters of New York City. Just previous to 
Ms transfer to Denver Mr. Sidney was manager 
or a chain of fifteen theaters in St Souls.

Sew York. If they succeed they are given a

"Business in general is good, and it looks 
like a successful theatrical season in most of 
the cities. We can scarcely hope to duplicate 
last season's record. For a combination of 
reasons the 1819-1920 season was an abnormal 
one, and I doubt if we shall ever see another 
one as prosperous. But If the return to normal 
conditions proceeds in its present orderly way. 
■there is no reason why we should not continue 
to be optimistic.**

6ns Sun, head of the Gus Son Booking Ex» 
change, makes a vigorous denial or assertions 
contained in an article in a recent issue of a 
theatrical paper, not The Billboard, regarding; 
the salaries that are being paid acta playing 
the Stan houses. 

"It ia asserted," says Mr. Sun, "that In- 
creased salaries are being paid to acts playing 
the theaters served by the Gas San Booking 
Exchange since the cancelation by B. F. Albee 
of my booking contract with the B. F. Keith 
office. I do not wish to question the gocd faith 
of the declarations, but I do assert that nothing 
could be farther removed from the fat ts. 

"It is a known fact that the Gus Sun Book- 
ing Exchange, and the other so-called inde- 
pendent circuits, always 1 have and even at this 
very time are paying less for acts than the 
United Time. I have in mind a specific act 
which has Just finished the Gas Sun Circuit. 
This act has just opened on the United for 
$100 more than was paid by this office and has 
been promised a route at $250 more than paid 
by the Gus Sun Circuit if the report is satis- 
factory. There are several other acts which 
also occur to me which now are receiving from 
¥100 to $150 per week more than they were 
paid on the Sun Circuit. 

"The booking managers of the various offices 
of the Gus Sun Circuit are all veterans of the 
business with a fundamental knowledge of the 
salaries of acts and vaudeville profession in 
detail and in general equaling any showmen in 
America. No agent of this circuit books an 
act blindfolded, or signs a contract with his 
eyes closed. These men are constantly on the 
alert to gnard against any manner of deception 
as to tbe quality or tbe salary of acts and in 
every other way to protect the interests of the 
clients of this organization. Furthermore their 
facilities for obtaining information ns to acts, 
salaries, etc., and their records are just as 
comprehensive, and complete as any organization 
in tbe United States. The troth is that Gus 
Sun booking managers are dealing only with 
those agents known by them to he above sus- 
picion of sharp practice. Even the most casual 
investigation will disclose that this office Is ob- 
taining better acts at less money than ever be- 
fore in its history. 

"Within the last week twelve new cities 
tiave been added to the Gus Sun Circuit. This 
fact alone should be sufficient to convince any- 
one that neither agents nor acts are "taking 
advantage of Gns San.**

HELEN FREEMAN 

Leaves the Wilkes Players 

Popular Denver Leading Wom- 
an To Star in Her Own Ve- 
hicle—Will Appear in 
Los Angeles 



, Denver, Col., Sept. 25.— Helen Freeman,, who 
sas appeared as leading woman for toe Wilkes 
Players of the Dcnuam Theater for the past 
six weeks, will leave Denver Sunday for Los 
Angeles, where a., new play opon which she 
has been working will be produced. 

Miss Freeman las had the Idea of her play 
in mind, for some time and two years ago be- 
gan the work of translating It to manuscript, 
collaborating with a writer to whom the idea 
also appeared wortty of dramatic exposition. 

A tentative title for the piece has been se- 
lected, but will not be announced at this time. 
The play deals with, the regeneration of a 
woman and Is written in the style of modern 
romantic melodrama. Miss Freeman will ap- 
pear In the leading role when the drama is 
presented In the Wilkes Theater. Later she 
will return to New York, where in the course 
/ot a. year or two she hopes to crystallize her 
/ long-cherished Ideals and conceptions of the 
fundamental repertoire theater. 

MEL ODRA MA 
Holds Stage at Shub erfa, Milwaukee 

• Milwaukee, Wis.. Sept. 27. — "Dawn o* the 
Mountains," a play of the Tennessee Moun- 
tains and the quaint people who inhabit them, 
is this week's offering- by the Shubert Players. 
In spite of it» extreme length and rather shop- 
worn plot. It is wholly pleasing and affords 
some of the company an opportunity to do 
some splendid acting. 

As the little mountain girl Frances McHenry 
is excellent. It is totally nnllke anything we 
have ever seen her play and she seemed to 
actually live the part. Second only to Miss 
McHenry was the playing of Buck McNalr by 
Oscar O'Saea. His characterization of the 
ragged old mountaineer was a work of art. 

Helen Empton. as the boy. was very good 
Indeed. This little lady has shown much versa- 
tility of late and Is becoming a warm favorite. 
In the part of a most "villainous villain." 
John Marston worked hard and was rewarded 
by being most thoroly despised. James Blaine, 
as the "city chap," and Jerome lienner, as 
Ma friend, were pleasing, and Alice Mason, 
Bert Brown and Earl Jamison were most ac- 
ceptable In their respective parts. 

In spite of the remarkably warm weather for 
this time of the year business Is very good, 
proving that melodrama, properly played, is 
•a, acceptable today as it was in the days of 
onr fathers. "39 East" next week— H. B,

Davis is featored in the programs as "Anne 
Davis and Her Tlayers." The comnajy will 
have a drawing population of aoout 200.000.

a stock organization in the South last winter, 
and ho was at one time prominent In vaude-

WIZARD GEORGE 

Speaks Favorably of the Vees Stock. 
Zanesville, O. 

Grover G. George, known more familiarly to 
bis friends of the show world as the Wizard 
George, who has a magical wonder show en route, 
was a Cincinnati caller last week. George 
didn't have much to say about himself, or his 
activities (tho he did' entertain the editorial 
Stan* a bit with some clever card tricks), but 
Was more interested in telling about the ex- 
ceptional ability of the Tees Stock Company, 
which be says is enjoying a phenomenal run 
at Zanesville, O., and is now on its sixth week. 
George says that only the best and latest 
royalty bills % ate receiving the attention of the. 
management. "I was in the town recently and 
paid the company a visit." said he. "Ca'paMty 
greeted the players nightly and only one bill 
a week is presented. When the company first 
opened it was met with discouraging remarks 
about how dead the town was for stock, but 
the company certainly fooled them. I could see 
Dorothy Dow and Al Vees play every night and 
enjoy It more each time. They play the leads. 
And Eva Sargent— well, her prowess is going 
to make her as popular nationally some day as 
she is today in Zanesville, and that day Isn't 
far off. In fact everyliody in the company is 
expert in their individual line and I consider 
Zanesville theatergoers fortunate In having such 
a company." 



theatrical centers of the country and with n 
long experience that should be strongly in favor 
in her local engagement. 

Tho piece chosen for Miss Woolridge's open- 
ing engagement was "The Great Divide." 

STARK WITH SHEA'S STOCK 

0. Nick Stark, who is probably one of the best 
known character actors playing around &ew 
York in stock, has returned from his Chau- 
tauqua tonr. He was in New York for only a 
few hours when he was dispatched to Holyoke. 
Mass., opening with Shea's Stock Company on 
September 13 in "At 0:4.-,." Nick says- the only 
reason he doesn't work with Broadway pro- 
ductions is that the period of rehearsals is too 
long. ' 

ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED 

Peggy Lorraine, a popular little dancer and 
entertainer, was a Cincinnati visitor last week. 
She announced the engagement of her sister, 
Bernadette- Lorraine, vpII known in dramatic 
stock circles, to John Francis Malloy, master

as all other towns of its-size, manages to get

get a company with several good bills. 

"The people of Liberal have enjoyed their 
ery performance and especially the one last 
Might, in which every member of the company 
starred. Their play for tonight is one of the 
greatest type, and will certainly be enjoyed 
by as many as can obtain seats. Every per- 
son in the company works in the specialties 
and their line is new and exceptionally clever.

PRISON SHIP "SUCCESS" 
Leaves Atlantic City 

Atlantic City, Sept. 22.— The prison ship 
"Success," the oldest vessel afloat, which proved 
to be 8 great attraction hero all summer, put 
out to sea at high tide last Thursday afternoon 
shortly after four o'clock, crossed the bar with- 
out mishap and got away on its Journey to 
Philadelphia, towed by a sea going tug. 

Captain D. II. Smith, in command of the 
"Success." had anticipated that some difficulty 
might be experienced in crossing the bar, as 
there is only about 14 feet of water there at 
high tide, and the "Success" draws that much. 
The Government dredge "Absecon" was on hand 
to assist if the vessel had touched bottom, but 
her services were not needed. 

Thousands of persons along the beach and 
Boardwalk watched the big Tassel standing out 
towards the horizon, many^of them armed with 
glasses. After a stay in Philadelphia the "Sue 
.ess" will go to Cuba for the winter. An effort 
has been made to have Captain Smith bring the 
historic convict ship back here next summer, 
but his plans are indefinite at the present time. 

Daring Its stay of ten weeks thousands of 
persons boarded the vessel, and got some first- 
hand information how convicts were treated 
100 years ago.

Gilda Varesi IVJust One Visitor

New York, Sept. 24.— There are certain tilings 
that must be taken into consideration when yon

my life, and, while I admit I have never known 
a cook who could play a flute like William 
Ballman. as Archimede, the chef in our piece, 
does, at the same time, wouldn't it be possible? 
Jt wouldn't be impossible, would it?" 

And right here came a knock at Miss Taresj's 
door. A trio of Mies bad made their appear- 
ance. They just wanted to express their best 
wishes Tor the future of "Enter, Madame"; 
they had seen the show and they had enjoyed 
it SO much, and especially Miss Varos-i's work, 
and wouldn't she take lunch with them some 
of these days? And following these visitors 
came others, one a young married couple, both 
of whom are in « Broadway musical comedy, 
and they Just dropped around to say they had*

THE EQUITY SHOP . 

J. Marcus Keyes, of the Chicago 

Branch of Equity, Discusses 

Progress 

Chicago, Sept. 32. — The Equity Shop is a 
subject of growing interest to Chicago acton 
at the present time, J. Marcaj Keyes, of the 
Chicago ofllce of Equity, discussed the subject 
with. The Billboard today. 

"The expressions from Chicago acton are 
virtually unanimous In favor of the Equity 
Shop," said Mr. Keyes. "The Idea took from 
the start, so far as that Is concerned, bnt It 
has been cemented in a wonderful whole of 
late." 

When Frank GUlmore, executive secretary, 
was in Chicago recently a Billboard repreaen- 



attempt I became all mixed up on my plot and ^tml^^ ? »e«t»ntaneot« response

That was Just what happened when we thought 
it advisable to assimilate a little of "Enter, 
Madame." at the Garrick Theater, to "watch 
Cilda Varesi. We strolled Jauntily up to the 
ticket window and expressed a desire fur two 
good seats. Two seats, good or had. weren't 
to be bad at any price, it seemed. New York 
bad decided to see Just how, why and when 
Madame entered that night. The girl at the 
ticket window said that New York bad been 
just as curious about Madame's entries on every 
week day night since the day of the opening. 
August 1C. We accepted the ultimatum and 
stood up daring the evening performance. First 
on one foot and then on the other. And it was 
worth it. "Enter, Madame" is moving np in 
the Times Square district soon,- and it will 
probably be Just e s hard to get seats. 

.But to return to the interview. We enjoyed 
Cilda Varesi and it was thought best to in- 
f terview her. Yesterday afternoon, after the 
matinee, I invaded Gilda Varesi's dressing 
room. She is a charming woman, with pleas- 
ing personality and a voice that sort of 
fascinates yon. In fact, she is altogether too 
charming. For we soon found that she had a 
large following. And they all followed the 
trail to her dressing room. 

"1 have done tragedy all my life," began 
Miss Varesi. as her maid carefully put away 



'aresi's work. 

edged the friendly wishes; we waited patient- 
ly while ?*ew York troupea up to her dressing 
room to pay homage. Finally there was a lull. 
New York bad' seen the show and it bad done 
the most natural thing in the world— expressed 
its appreciation direct to the star— for New 
York insists on personal visits in such cases— 
and finally Miss Varesi was again at liberty 
to discuss the stage. 

The fact that Gavin Muir, who plays the 
part of the son, John Fitzgerald, in the play, 
rather underplays than overplays his part is 



which I think you wiU admit is a success. Ar ^"Sf^jL^t ^ m ° f " ct0rB w "°

bears no resemblance to his mother, the tem- 
pestuous Madame Robbla, is, to Miss Varesi's 
mind, a most sincere note in the play. 

"'How many people," she argues, "have eons 
that are almost like changelings? Sometimes 
yon see a man who, like John Fitzgerald, has 
a mother Just like Madame Kobbia. Gerald 
Fitzgerald, his father, the part assumed in 
such a distinguished way by Norman Trevor, 
is supposed to be an Irishman, lively as he 
is, he is tied by something of an inherent 
conservatism, and the whole thing is logically 
tied together. These same queer interlocking, 
half-suppressed tendencies, such as are expressed 
by Gerald Fitzgerald, are what help make our 
Uvea complex — and worth living.**

"The sort of thing that appeals to me most- 
is a dramatic effort that is set with diamonds

wonderful, I think,' than real tragedy. It is 
a state of mind and one is on the stage to 
express states of mind. Madame Lisa DeDa 
Bobbin, the temperamental prima donna of 
''Enter, Madame', expresses an extreme in the 
so-callerl artistic temperament. But I have 
made a careful study of such characters all 



proper time is taken in the learning of the 
part, rehearsing and care for the line details 
which are necessary for proper presentation." 

Just then came another knock at the door. 
This time it was Ethel Taylor, an artist and 
great friend of Miss Varesi. She has Just 
completed a cover design for Irving S. Cobb's 
latest honk. "Abandoned Farms." 

"Now," said Miss Varesi, "yon must by this 
time .have quite enough to fill the whole issue 
of the next Billboard." We admitted that we 
bad considerable of an interview. As -we started 
out of the door two more people arrived. 

"We Just wanted to tell you how we enjoyed 
— " But we passed out of hearing. There is 
no denying it. Gilda Varesi has many friends!

LUNT LEARNS TO TOOT 

"Denver. Col., Sept. 24.— Until he read the 
manuscript of Booth Tarklngton's "Clarence." 
in which he is again essaying the leading role 
this season, Alfred Lunt was no musician, had 
not even an intention of being a musician'.' But 
the manuscript changed all that He was to 
be Clarence on the stage, and Clarence played 
the piano, and. what was more awesome, the 
saxophone. Mr. Tarklngton was Insistent that 
the playing should not be "faked." To anyone 
who ins seen the comedy, the reason for this 
is manifest. -The saxophone incident closes 
the second act, and unless the portrayer of the

the Romans, who turned their thumbs down in 
answer to the appeals of helpless gladiators. A 
man who adopts the stage as a profession gives 
np, as- a rule, much greater'opportunlties. The- 
atrical salaries sound fabulous to laymen, but 
in reality they are not. Consider any ordinary 
instance of a "leading man" with a standard 
show: In contract figures, he is remunerated) 
exorbitantly: but what of his expenses and the 
outlays of bis trade? lie pays extravagant, 
yet necessary, bills for living: hotels, sleepers, 
dining cars, tips— all that goes with traveling in 
decent style requires a large amount. He must 
wear good raiment; it is demanded of him. A 
man who has chosen the law or medicine as a 
profession would soon be independently wealthy 
on the same financial returns. The man woo

oitljay of cash than the man who must follow 
the Interminable road. The man who buiMs

251 Lexington Ave., New York City 

Our cherished plan of taking the disabled 
soldiers on aa outing to Luna Park hag been 
abandoned owing to other important matters oc- 
cupying the attention of the managers of the 
ocean resort. The plan likewise was impracti- 
cable on account of the variable weather, which 
is always co'der at the shore. But instead we 
have another plan which will tend to bring 
gladness and good cheer to the boys at the 
Service House. In our next issue we will dis- 
Vush this propes-ition more at length. Many of 
our reliable standbys have not failed ns this 
week, and we quote a few interesting letters 
from our generous contributors to the coupon. 

Dear Friends — Enclosed please find my bit 
(25 cents) towards your wonderful work. More 
will follow from time to time. Best of luck. 
Yours, Francis X. 

Another cheery line from dear Flo.Rockwood. 
who has been playing over in England. Her let- 
ter is dated Wakefield, Eng., under date of 
August 25: "Dear Friends — Just another letter 
from the quaint, historical town of Wakefield, 
and also a good old Yankee dollar, to give at

the visitors' book at the Cathedral I came across

FOLLY 

Of Dirty Show Exemplified 

By Protests Against "G. V. Fol- 

lies" in Kansas City— Actors 

Should Stop Growing 

Evil 



Discriminating playgoers. who may have 
been hesitating in attending the Shnbert Thea- 
ter thi3 week, where the 'Greenwich Village 
Folllea of 1010' are on display, for the reason 
that the Sunday nlghfs performance was re- 
plete with coarse and suggestive lines on the 
part of certain comedians, now have the as- 
anrance of J. a. Glick, house manager, that 
nothing objectionable will mar the remaining 
performances this week. Beviewers who were 
amazed by some of the daring dialog in the 
first night's performance attended the show 
again last night In view of a promise by Mr. 
Click tbaat the blotches on the escutcheon 
would he removed. They found the scouring; 
had been fairly well done. The blackface 
comedian still seems a little rougher than the 
occasion warrants, but his Jokes, for the most 
part, are so old that the audience seems 
Inured to even the worst ones. 'Jimmy' "Watts 
.Selves more into the realm of burlesque than 

- straight comedy, but is an artist In his line 
and well received. The rest of the show is a 

, little better than the average entertainment, 
too. The music Is lilting- and harmonious, and 
the scenic effects and general staging above 
the average. — E. B. <J." 

The above Is from The Kansas City Star or 
September 14. 

Could one want a better example of the 
folly of "dirtying up" a show than this? Here 
Is a successful road attraction which la so 
dirty that even the case-hardened critics are 
amazed. They protest. The house manager 
promises to have the show scrubbed up,, and 
the critics return the next night to see that 
he has kept his word. Truly a delightful ex- 
perience for the company and the theater. 

There are several other shows playing la 
New Tork right now to which the same thing ' 
will happen when they go on tour If they are '. 
not deodorized. This is the sort of publicity • 
that does the stage harm. Is It any wonder ' 
■that many a theatergoer believes all the men \ 
on the stage are coarse and all the women r 
frail when the ears of his women folk and 
Jitmself are assailed with the phonographic 
■utterances of an alleged comedian? (We Bay 
"alleged comedian'' advisedly, for a real co- 
median does not have to resort to obscenity to 
he funny.) Many actors soem to forget that 
the playgoer continually associates the char- 
acter an actor plays on the stage with his 
personal character off the boards. This Isn't 
so bad. The shame of it is that his associates 
Slave to share his evil reputation with him. 
A primitive sense of . decency should prevent 
an actor from saying things in a theater that 
le wouldn't say to a gathering of ladles and 
gentlemen elsewhere. 

Actors who resort to filth keep decent people 
away from the theater and lower, the standing 
of themselves and their, profession in the eyes 
of the most Important element of any com- 
munity. The actor has to stand for a lot of 
things that he never does or says, but he will 
have a hard job convincing those outside of 
his profession that there are decent men and

women la it when they hear him spouting 
obscenities from the stage. 

There seem to be only two ways to stop 
the growing evils of the dirty comedian and 
the dirty play. The managers. Judging by 
their past records, won't. The public and the 
actors can. The only question is. which will? 
If the actor Is wise he will he the one. The 
self-resepcting actor and actress will welcome 
the day when filth is driven from the stage, 
and the way to hasten that day is to give some 
forcible expression to their desire. A con- 
certed movement of the acting profession in this 
direction would be welcomed by all decent 
playgoers and raise their estimate of the pro- 
fession immeasurably. Certainly, this Is bet- 
ter than having the public authorities step In. 
That they will most certainly do if the actor 
can not clean up the stage himself. 

Doctor Johnson told David Garrick that he 
and his profession were mutually indebted to 
each other. "Tour profession," said the 
Doctor, "has made you rich: and you have 
made your profession respectable." The time 
Is 'here right now when some actors should 
compel other actors to emulate Garrick to the 
. extent of becoming respectable, even if they do 
not get rich. If they don't, a less friendly 
hand is liable to do It for them.

BROKE ALL RECORDS 

"Aphrodite" Certainly Set Some Paces 
According to the Auditorium 

Chicago, Sept. 25.— "Aphrodite," the daring 
and more or less unclassified spectacle now 
current in the Auditorium, has been the one 
wild woman of the show world of the present 
— or any other — Chicago season. 

"Yes." said G. B. Swayze, assistant mana- 
ger of that dignified temple of art, to The 
Billboard, "It has been a wonderful startofT. 
It's been some business. Last week, the 
initial week, grossed better than $70,000. That 
knocks everything else the Auditorium has had. 
barring opera, into the cheap discard. Let's 
see," and Mr. Swayze paused reflectively. ".VI 
Jolson didn't do better than $45,000 on his 
first week in 'Sinuad'. 'Ben-IIur's' phenomenal 
rnns never approached even that. But It must 
be remembered that 'Ben-IIur"s' top was $1.30. 
However. 'Aphrodite 1 Is the great big child 
that has come to Chicago and set new stand- 
ards." 

Mr. Swayze la not alone a trained and able 
manager; he Is also an optimist. ITe would 
like to see the Auditorium make a little hit 
of money after Its season of opera is ended, 
lie is one of the men who do a lot of figuring 
on operatic overhead. 

"1 think," he said, "that the Auditorium is 
showing itself to be a profitable place for big 
attraction?. Or even for attractions not on tie 
scale of magnitude of 'Aphrodite'. For example. 
"The Bose of China* was brought from the lit- 
tle La Salle Theater to the Auditorium" to 
finish its engagement. It couldn't be called a 
big show, could it? Well, It showed to 2.000 
to 3,000 people a night. How's that? And I 
understand that Comstook & Gest, the owners 
of 'Aphrodite', will bring 'Mecca' to the Audi- 



set. Hal Van Rcnnselear. Hallye Nestor. ■Wil- 
liam Sully. Terk Mnrdock, Marcelle Barnes, 
Taul Van Dyke. Florence Kerns. Peg~y Mitchell,

The ensemble numbers of "Broadway Brev- 
ities of 1920" were staged by Jack Mason, a 
pantomimic interlude conceived by Bert Wil- 
liams was directed by M. Kosloff, the music 
is by Archie Gottler, lyrics by Blair Treynor, 
and there are numbers by Bert Kalmar and 
■Harry Buby, Irving Berlin and others. 

"WEDDING BELLS" 

Chicago, Sept. 25.— Harry McCIintock, a 
newspaper man. and Mildred Evans, professional 
understudy to Margaret Lawrence, or the "Wed- 
ding Bells" Company, now playing in the Cort 
Theater, were married September 22 In St. 
Paul's TJnlversalist Church. 

Mr. McCIintock formerly was with the A. B. 
F-. and Miss Evans toured Prance with the 
entertainment brlKade. They met in that conn- 
try. Her home Is in Cedar Bapids, la., and 
she was granted a two days' layoff when the 
manager learned of the forthcoming nuptials. 

OPERATE ON MISS MAYFIELD 

New York. Sept. 25. -Max Spiegel announces 
a resumption of the tour of "Look Who's Here" 
this week, with Cecil Lean and Cleo MayfieWs 
sister. Georgia, playing Miss Mayfield's part. 
'Miss Mayfleld was stricken ill while playing 
Boston recently. The engagement at the Coloni- 
al Theater, Boston, was immediately terminated 
and Miss Mayfleld brought to New Tork City. 
A consultation with physicians was held, fol- 
lowing which a major operation was performed 
on Miss Mayfleld at St. Bartholomew's Hos- 
pital, which was pronounced a success, and 
Miss Mayfield's early recovery is expected.

Atlantic City, Sept. 22.— Those who witnessed. 
at the Globe Theater Monday night, the pre- 
miers Of "The Bose Girl." had recalled must 
pleasantly their musical memories of that ex- 
quisite work by the same authors— "The Boyal 
Vagabond"— for in "The Bose Girl" they had 
set before them a cleverly captivating musical 
novelty, full of French atmosphere, roses, per- 
fume, song and dancing, all so extraneingly In- 
terwoven that It did not really need the slight 
Btory permeating the piece. 

The first scene is laid In a romantic bit of 
the French Biviera, where a yonng Marquis, dis- 
owned by his father, falls in love with a pretty 
Bttle rose maid, who in the course of events 
discovers a perfume for each personality, and 
goes to Paris to escape the demonstrations of 
her guardian and to demonstrate her work. Of 
course, they are later reunited ,and everything 
turns out in the customary happy way; but 
-during the process it serves as a background for 
some very charming music and dancing. 

Little Mable Withce, aa Mignon, the Boss 
Girl, is excellently adapted for her part. Her 
voice, tho not so powerful, is charmingly sweet, 
and she has a charming personality that made a 
very agreeable impression. 

Harold Crane, as the Count; Flora Zabelle, as 
Nadine, the Russian; Boy Atwell. as Jellicot: 
Bay Baymond, as Victor; Dorothy Mackaye, as 
Fieurette; Josie Intropidi, as Mme. Donnay. lent 
much humor to the piece. 

It was an exceptionally well-chosen cast, and 
should prove a success. — B. EDMUNDS FOS- 
TER. 

"MAID TO LOVE" 

Given Creditable Mention by Cincinnati 
Dailies 

Cincinnati newspapers commented favorably 
on the musical piece, "Maid To Lore," which 
played in that city last week to excellent 
houses, despite the hot weather. Efforts are 
being made by the management to take the 
show into Broadway in the near future. It !■ 
a cleverly arranged vehicle, with a good book 
and music, and with more detailed direction 
find a few changes in the cast, should make 
- good. Bobert Woolsey and Tom Lewis bear 
the burden of the business. During* the week 
Baymond VT. Peck, author of the book, and 

Percy Wenrich were on hand to offer suggestions 
and aid in smoothing out the rough spots. 

MUSICAL COMEDY NOTES 

Wendell rhilllps Bodge will produce "Lo- 
rayne" shortly. 

Hazel LIbby has been added to the cast of 
"The Night Boat." 

Jobnny Dooley and Clifton Webb will be

Times," the current New Tork Hippodrome

In eight years. Stanley Sharpe is interested

"NO STOCK: NO RECORDS' 

viever Scheme Being Worked on New 

York Publishers To Float New 

Recording Company—Some 

Fall, But Only a Few 

New York. Sept. 24.— A very nift, scheme 
.came to light this week to separate the pub- 
lishers of mnsle la this town from their coin, 
.using the bludgeon of* a threat not to record 
their numbers if they failed to come thro. A 
certain company which has been making rolls 
.for player pianos for some years announced to 
the publishers that they were about to inaugu- 
rate a record company. They sent an engaging 
young man around to the publishers with this 
information, and when the publisher started to 
talk about recording his numbers, the young 
man Started to talk money. He Informed them 
that before they, could hare a number recorded 
by his firm the publisher would have to take 
out $1,000 worth of stock in the record company 
and said that if they didn't they would get no 
recordings of their number?. • 

The yonng- man met with a cold shoulder in 
most or the places he Tisitedj -one member of a. 
small firm threatening to kick him out. But, 
surprising to relate, three firms, and three of 
the largest In the business at that, fell for the 
scheme. 

; The funny part of the whole business is that 

the roll concent which is backing the new record 

^tan has « reputation for issuing "Joke" roy- 

pa? 1 '? statements for mechanical recordings— hot 

inur. tu they have corraled three more or less 

^delveling stock subscribers, and hope for more.

KINNEY CORRECTS SANGER 

Oklahoma City, Ok., Sept. 26. 
To the Editor: 

Permit me, thra the columns of your publica- 
tion, to correct a Mr. Sanger, who signed an 
article in your current issue, and under the 
bead of The Frigco-Suows, saying that bis show 
Will play Cashing. Ok., week of September 27, 
find the Frisco Shows are the only show to se- 
cure a Hermit to exhibit in Cashing this season. 

I beg to advise Mr. Sanger that the records 
at Cashing will show that at least another car- 
nival preceded the Frisco Shows at Cashing, I 
being there with the S. W. Brnndage Shows, 
week of May 3 this year. 

Why is it that so much "bull" is written 

every -week by some advance agents and pub- 
licity promoters for certain shows? People in 
my line, that of handling concessions, are often 
bumped into a long jump and a. poor date, due 
to the unscrupulous methods nsed by many 
agents and publicity promoters in making up 
-their news items for The Billboard. 

Yon must pardon me. Mr. Sanger, for publicly 
calling your attention to this error of yours, 
but as 1 am a regular reader of The Billboard 
I take for granted that I have a right to have 
my say in this matter. I knowing full well that 
you «re mistaken* and tnat the papers of Cash- 
ing, the city officials, also the manager of the 
'Brnndage Shows, will back: me up in my as- 
sertion. 

(Signed) BEX (BALDT) K1NNET. 

"WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE 
MUSIC BUSINESS?" 

1 want to come out flat-footed and say "Noth- 
ing is wrong with the music business/* The 
trouble is the "almighty dollar." This last- 
named article has been quoted as worth any- 
where between 30 ana 40 cents, ana when it 

comes to publishing music this same dollar that 
in the past was visioned at one hundred cents 
Is worth about 22 cents. 

Engravers, printers and in fact every -worker 
and every commodity nsed in publishing music 
are costing 200 per cent more than a year ago 
ago. They are worth it, for these men must 
live, tand the "butcher, baker and candlestick 
maker*' have all raised their prices, as everyone 
la aware, and, of course, to eat, the printer 
must pay the prices charged. 

Personally, the continued rise in the price 
of the publishing has hit me an awfnl wallop, 
yet I grin and bear it. for I believe "the 
laborer 13 worthy of his hire*' every time, and 
It does not seem consistent to pay more for 



everything else and to expect music to se'l «t 
the same price as a year ago. Stop and think 
— aren't the music publishers the last to raise 
their prices? 

Now, as for music on the stands being "rot," 
'I object to that sta tement very much. The Stork 
Co. has three ballads which in the next few- 
Weeks are going to 30 cents, for it is abso- 
lutely impossible to print music at a profit Tor 
less, and they certainly are not "rot." 

Now if John "Doe pays 30 cents for a song 
that he considers "rdt" I don't blame him for 
feeling sore, but really whose fault is it? It 
puts me in mind of a cartoon in a New York 
newspaper, "Why Do They Do It!" There is « 
wealth of good, songs on the counters for 30 



cents that are worth It, and there is no 
excuse for anyone paying that amount for so- 
called "rot" Sincerely.

SAYS SOUTHWEST IS O. K. 

BlackweU, Ok., Sept. 14, 1920. 
To The Billboard: 

There has been so much talk around the East 
and, Middle "West about conditions existing 
down in the Oklahoma and -Texas musical com- 
edy fields. A few dissatisfied performers, who 
never make good anywhere, and a few people 
who style themselves producers (and all they 
produce is hits which every medicine show has 
presented on the free outdoor platform), have 
spread the rumor that this country is bad. We 
have shows of fifteen' people playing to es 
high as forty-five hundred dollars gross in some 
towns, a tab. getting from a thousand to 
twelve hundred a week being an ordinary event. 
Mr. Barbour, of Mnskogee, Ok., has a production. 
••The Midnight Whirl"' show, featuring Big

such shows down here. "The Band Box Re-

"The Matinee Girls." "The Broadway Follies." 
Bert Southern & Co.. Alhardt's Show, "The 
Mysterious Smith" and Company, Atburtus & 
Co., Selvin & Co., and others too numerous to 
mention. The entire trouble with some of the 
tab. owners that hare invaded this Held is the 
actor-producer accumulates a few hundred dol- 
lars and without the proper amount of capital 
tries to put out several companies. A tabloid 
put out in this territory, that is, one that 
will get the money, costs on an average of 
from four to five thousand' dollars, and the 
boys that have the shows down here get the big 
money. That's the secret of Ensley Barbour's 
success; he has the capital, be owns the better 
houses personally and books the best in the 
towns that he does not own. There hare been 
several small concerns which arose and tried 
to take this territory away from Mr. Barbour 
but to sum the entire situation up in a nut- 
shell Mr. Barbour is the Martin Beck, E. F. 
Albee. Alex. 1'anrages. Marcus Locw, Harry 
Weber of the Southwestern muriral comedy 
field, and this much is guaranteed, that- artists 
with ability, personality, and ones- who re- 
spect contracts, can work for Mr. Barbour 52 
weeks a year, and- in the end will have more 

clear money for their personal . use than ir 
playing small big-time vaudeville. I know. 
I've played it all, big, small and medium. In 
closing will say that Ensley Barbour is not a 
shoe-string affair, but a million-dollar proposi- 
tion. He has seventy consecutive weeks of reg- 
ular houses, leasing about twenty houses him- 
seir, owning about twenty of his own produc- 
tions. His organization consists of a booking 
department, scenic studio, press department, 
wardrobe department, employing a designer of 
reputation: printing department and producing 
department, with a real production director at 
the head. And the Eastern artists do not real- 
ize the conditions down here. The average num- 
ber of shows dally are three. 

Some of the towns are one show dailv, some 
two and two towns four on Saturday. Trusting 
that you will let the public and Eastern per- 
formers understand the situation down here, and 
wishing there were more Ensley Harbours in 
the show game,

Hamilton, 0., opened Monday night, September 
20, with Neil O'Brien's Minstrels as the open-

dressed up this season, many new improvements 
having been Installed, including an entire new 
stage, opera chairs and complete furnishings 
thruont. This ' marks Mr. O'Brien's ninth 
annual tour and is said to be far superior ta 
anything yet offered. For quite a number of 
years Mr. O'Brien has given particular attention 
to the writting and staging of minstrel acts 
and features, and in this year's production his 
experience and original ideas have enabled him 
to. produce what is promised as the highest- 
class minstrel entertainment ever presented. 
Mr. O'Brien has written three new acts for 
this year's performance, a dancing novelty 
called "Playmates." surpassing the syncopated 
acts made famous by this organization the past 
three years; a comedy sketch called "Hopping 
the Atlantic Ocean." In which Jack Amick is 
said to be at his best, and a one-act finale In 
three scenes entitled "Americanization," which 
is said to be Mr. O'Brien's masterpiece. 

Lew Wilson, the "Variety Boy," has also been 
engaged and he offers an entire new routine 
of songs, jokes and melodies *on the different 
instruments of which he seems to be the master. 
In addition to Mr. Wilson, the following artists 
have been engaged: Bavis "Sugarfoot" Gaffney, 
Jack Amick, Danny Bocbe, J. Lester Haber- 
horn. Joseph White, Walter Sherwood, lea 
La:rd, Steve Berrian, Bobby Gossans, Roy Allen,

In the theatrical section of The Springfield 
(III.) Sunday Journal dated August 29 the 
caption about the minstrels read: "Arthur 
Deming, who will be seen at the Chatterton 
tomorrow night with Togel's Minstrels." TJn- 
derneath was shown a black and whiteface cut 



of Arthur Bigby. The agent mast have -gored

An error slipped into last week's issue re- 
garding* the opening of Ed. J. Murray's Big 
Time Minstrels. The show, as previously stated, 
was to have opened at rittsbnrg. >_.. Septem- 
ber 20, but according to Mr. Murray the open- 
ing date Is set for October 9 at McKeesport. 
Those who have been engaged include Bert 
Marshall, Tom Ward. AI Tint, Will Conklin and 
Tommy Alrtn, aU of whom have great prestige 
In the sunny South. Harry Hall, Eugene Leigh, 
Henry Long, Harry Goldle and others comprise 
the singing contingent. Harry Hall will also 
act in the capacity of Interlocutor. 

Behearsals will soon be under way for the 
11th annual production of the Charity Minstrels, 
presented by Lodge No. 1218, B. P. O. Elks 
or Sterling, in., under the direction of 
Guerdon E. Bishop, Past Exalted Buler of the 
lodge, and at one time owner of the Bert 
Ehipard Minstrels. Since retiring from the pro- 
fessional Mr. Bishop is conducting a success- 
ful printing establishment in Sterling. Com- 
petent critics who have heard the Sterling 
Minstrels state their snappy performance is 
far above the average home talent production, 
the singing contingent being especially merl- 
toriong. Several wen-known performers are 
members of the Sterling Elks, including' lied 
Holmes, of Holmes & Wells, Charles Wart-b- 
and Earl Howard.

ly well, and vastly better. And it will not be 
long until audiences themselves will make out 
their own reports. The enemies of a system 
which enables tbe public to actually know tho 
past record of each attraction are trying to de^ 
stroy the only system that can make such in 
formation possible by building around it sue A 
conditions and requirements as to make it prac^lj! 
tically impossible to operate. 

We are told tiat an occasional injustice Is 
sure to be done here and there by the publish- 
ing of these reports. No doubt of It. But 
my answer is that for each injustice under the 
committee report system there are ten injus- 
tices nnder the present system, and all due to 
tbe lack of these reports. Even our courts do 
an occasional injustice. But tbat Is no argu- 
10O ment for abolishing* them, but only for trying 
to improve them. Injustice exists everywhere. 
All we can do is to make it less. And that the 
committee reports will help mightily to achieve. 
"These objectors fail to see the splendid 
service which these reports have rendered even 
In so short a time for scores of unknown, bnt 
meritorious talent — men and women. It makes 
their^ merits known to the world. It gives 
them freedom And independence by putting 
their record in the hands of the men and women 
who are the buyers of talent— namely, the com- 
mitteemen themselves.

» j T v^ ueinecii me iwu givups is one mat concerns suostance and not form, the 
terlals and not the methods of playmaking. The Frenchman may distort and pervert m« 
passions, the American avoids them. The former approaches a single situation from an 
hundred roads, the latter flees from it by as many. Thus the one is apt to be 
monotonoua and violent, the other empty and trivial. A natural consequence of this 
contrast is that when a single French play comes to ns in the midst of a throng of

of life than it really is. .

well enough built; each selects and sustains its note with sufficient Bkill: all are false 
and vacuous to a degree that lifts the isolated French play into an unmerited luster 
and turns its brass to gold. Sir. Porter Emerson Browne's "The Bad Man" (Comedy

amendment is more vital than the wet and dry

^ ? n . t .. tI,e art Whidh moves P e °Pfe to hysterics is— ^ well, what are you going to do 
about 'it? 

Here is the exact case. 

Margaret Anglin is playing "The Woman of Bronze" at the Frazee Theater. MiSB 
Anglin is an emotional actress. Her emotion is so emotional that it is almost im- 
possible to suppress it. If Miss Anglin says "It is a fine day!" (center stage) she 
say it so emotionally that if you had the heart of a landlord your spectacles would im- 
mediately get misty. There is no reason for tears, but no one can resist. When Miss 
Anglin turns her back to the audience (center stage!, emotionally, of course, and blows 
her lady-like nose, the deluge can no longer be checked. Tears pour down your cheeks 
But when Miss Anglin. as a good, true and noble wife, is going to lose her husband 
with a million dollar rrize In his sculptor's reach, because be is running away with a 
young huzzy who plays file Tiolin and lias a drunken father, you are literally inundated 
by the roaring surge or tearful seas which billow all around yon. 

And if you are a married woman it is plain hell. That's what it is. plain hell!*

If Thomas Dixon's drama was the best play on the subject that could possibly be 
written it could not succeed in New York, where John Drinkwater's "Abraham Lin- 
coin" has been running for almost a year. Mr. Drinkwater beat MV. Dixon to the 
punch. That is all there is to it. "A. Man of the People" has left New York for the 
great unknown of the road, huh that does not mean it is a .failure. It simply could 
not stand up under the opposition of an established success dealing with the same 
central figure, tho it is totally different in every particular. No play could. 

, Taken as a play Mr. Dixon's is by long odds the better. It has not the poetic dic- 
tion nor idealization of Drinkwater's "Lincoln," but it is more life like. The Drink- 
, water characterization is a book Lincoln. Dixon's is a something approaching the real 
man. The English writer's chief character is a somber individual with the premoni- 
tion of his >end over him. He has none of the earthy quality of the Illinois rail split- 
ter, and none of the broad humor, -which was one of Lincoln's most salient traits. It 
displays no trace of the ambition which he unquestionably had. Drinkwater's Great 
Emancipator is a man of gloom overborne by the weight of his job, a figure of somber- 

ness and brooding. There is no real life in him. 

In "A Jfan of the People" all these points are touched upon sincerely and honestly. 
It is no great secret that Lincoln wanted to be president the first time that he sought 
the office, and having been elected wanted a second term to vindicate his policy and to 
finish the work be felt bad to be finished in his way. It is equally well known tUat 
pressed by an opponent he resorted to a roughshod humor to discomfit the man who was 
fighting him. The scene between Lincoln and the Republican National Committeemen; 
with Thnddeus Stevens, as the bitter radical, carrying the fight to the president and 
being defeated by just such a method of ridicule, is excellently displayed. The sections 
of the play dealing with Lincoln's immortal gentleness toward the afflicted aml dis- 
tressed are particularly good, especially the interview- with the molfh'er who has lost 
two sons. The epilog, which shows the president standing between the pillars of 
the Capitol reading his second inaugural address, is so effective a bit of stage craft 
that it received 'curtain call after curtain call. v 

Comparisons between the characterizations of Frank McGIynn and Howard Hall, 
who is the Lincoln of the Dixon play, are unnecessary. Mr. McGIynn plays the role 
as it is written and directed by Mr. Drinkwater and docs a fine job. Mr. Hall, whose 
face does not lend itself so easily to the image of the president, is obliged to resort 
to the artifice of the makeup box, but he does an equally excellent job. John C. 
Hickey, as Thaddeus C. Stevens, is uncommonly good. Would there were more women 
on our stage with voices like Angela McCahill. It is incomparably lovely and has an 
exqnisite artistry behind it. There Is a fine assortment of whiskers of all sorts worn 
by Che National Committeemen, and a 'gentleman made up as the editor of The New 
York Times exemplifies perfectly what people who do not like The Times think the 
editor of that newspaper must look like even today. 

"A Man of the People" should have a prosperous season on the road. It deserves 
it.— PATTERSON JAMES.

, , "The Sweetheart Shop" was a great success in Chicago. Whether they are easy 

, , to please out there or we are too effete here to enjoy sweetly-sweet things is a question. 
, , However "The Sweetheart Shop" was a popular success in Chicago. While there is 
nothing new either in the story or Its treatment the music is tuneful and there Is in 
the cast a comedy lady named Esther Howard who Is effective despite the handicap of 
a most fearsome futurist wig and none too funny situations. Miss Howard is sot 
pretty and loses no time worrying over that fact. But she has- a vigorous sense of com- 
edy, slhe doesn't scream her points and she dances and disports herself entertainingly. 
With better material she has the makings of a valuable asset to the musical comedy 
stage, where funny women are painfully rare. She knows what she is abont she does 
not pose and she does not laugh at herself. A girl who knows the first rule of com- 
edy playing. wMcb. is sever to permit an audience to know you know you are funny, 
deserves success. 

Daniel Healy dances gracefully and agreeably, and Una Fleming, as the maid, Peggy, 
is a genuine Joy. She is pretty and unaffected, she can sing tolerably, she dances very 
well and she has winsomenesc. All of whicji are worth more than being squandered 
on a bit part. The opening number of the third act, "The Dresden China. Belle," wJUeh 
she does with the chorus (which is not at all hard to look at any time dntine tho 
evening), is tie best of the show. s 

Harry Morton, like aU the Mortons, -is ah indefatigable worker. He is a good 
dancer and he has so fear of an audience, a heritage of Ms training in burlesque It 
is unfortunate that he conveys the impression ot such perfect satisfaction with him- 
self and will laugh at Ms own actions. In a world where self-approbation Is not un- 
usual Mr. Morton's contentment with himself is appalling. Burlesque stars do Just about 
as they please on the stage. There is no restraint on a player's initiative in the bur- 
lesque theaters. It is responsible for that Institution turning out so many truly ex- 
ceUent performers. But it also has its drawbacks, because the absence of proper stage 
direction fails to check unpleasant tendencies on the part of featured comedians Mu- 
sical comedy needs young men who lave the unquestioned talents of Mr. Morton but 
high-class audiences prefer that approval should come from them to an artiste* and 
not from an artiste to himself. If Mr. Morton win forget himself completely be win 
go on steadily, but at present his mannerisms, real or assumed, are a serious drawback 
to Ms advancement,— PATTERSON JAMES. """ions arawoacg

SAM H. HARRIS PRESENTS 

"WELCOME STRANGER" 

By Aaron Hoffman. Staged by Sam Forrest. 



There is a story going the ronndB of Broadway that instead of "Welcom? Stranger" 
being the (handicraft of any one man it is really the composite product of set-era! gen- 
tlemen who know- all the gags in the ■world, all the effective stage bits, and all the 
sure-fire situations ever Invented. Whether there is anything in the rumor or not, 
time will tell, but one thing is certain — all the aborementloned things are in the piece. 
And the public, or a section of It at least which contributes largely to the support of 
the theater, eats it up and- yowls for more. * - 

There is no disguising the fact that "Welcome Stranger" is a bit of propaganda 
intended to counteract anti-Semitic feeling. If it is as effective as it is amusing In 
many places there will not be a Jew-baiter left. The scenes are all laid in a New 
England town, where there are no Jews and where they do not want any. 

A. Yiddish drummer has bten practically ejected from the sole hotel In 
tbe place to the great satisfaction of all the leading citizens, including tbe Mayor. 
Enters a stranger, Isidore Solomon, wbo is going to try to open a dry goods store. 
Fine chance he has! How he succors a runaway girl, how he takes the village elec- 
trical genius who is also the -village laugh and gives him the assistance and help bis 
Christiun neighbors xefuse him, how he, exposes tbe Mayor, who is a croofc and a Jew 
masquerading under the name of a "goy," and bow he makes the town over into a 
live community is set forth with all the speed of a twenty-minute vaudeville act and 
Just about as much plausibility. 

George Sidney, who is to be starred in tbe play, makes it. He plays quietly and 
effectively, and as he is an actor of long schooling in almost every phase of the show 
business he knows the value of every "if." "and" and "but." rie Is never stagey or 
a.-tory. For this all thanks! The rest of the cast is excellent. Edmund Breese as 
the stony-hearted Mayor. I.habod Whitoson. formerly Isaac Woolfson. does a journey- 
man's job, and David Ilicgins. as the village inventor, is pleasantly natural. 

Of course the story is impossible. It never . could happen In New Hampshire or 
Vermont. Two Jews once tried to make their living by trading with the Yankees 
across these two States. They died of starvation before they posted Rutland.— PAT- 
TERSON JAMES. ,

To a certain class of showgoers the Belasco Theater occupies tae earns affectionate 
place In the amusement world as that held a generation ago by the Eden Mnsee. Mr. 
Belasco is to them the producing Homer who never nods. These people enter the show- 
] \ house on Forty-fourth street aa reverently as Brahmins a holy shrine. Whatever they ' ' 
, , see Inside is both Inspired and artistic. The utterances of the High Priest, which In ' ' 
, , this r?ase happens to be the stage entertainment offered by Mr. Belasco, are infallible. ' ' 
., heaven born, and not to be questioner). The hocus-pocus that surrounds "idol " 
. . worship Is present when the gong booms to warn the worshipers that the ceremonies \ \ 
< > are to begin. The lights are lowered slowly to get the desired receptive mood and , , 
• > then the services begin. It Is all quite like the bunk gone thru by the clairvoyants , . 
' ' whom the police chased off the East Side some years past. » < . 

The dreary pastime of sitting thru Edward Enoblocfe'a "One," which for the time < • 
]' being is occupying the stage of the Belasco, heightens the spiritualistic seance 1m- <• 
( ( pression. Certainly no blindfolded, fat trance medium ever let loose such a mess ol\" 
preposterous bosh as that which is seriously offered in "One." The story in a mnstard ' ' 
seed is that of twin sisters who have only one soul between them, a kind of psychic 'arf. ' ' 
and-"arf. Neither Pearl nor Rnby, for so are the twins named, Is anything but a deml- ' ' 
tasse spiritual entity. In order to function properly and happily they must get into ', ' 
communication with each other, when separated, by gazing into the heart of a red red , , 
rose and calling out the front window: "Are yon tbeyah?" If there Is no red ro'se a . . 
led flannel petticoat might do, but no one conld dream of such a crude thing as a flannel 
petticoat In a Belasco production. Both sisters are In love with the same man. They 
both cannot have him any more than they can have a full portion soul. So Foil decides 
to deed over her half of the soul estate to Bnby, or Buoy does to Poil, It doesn't make 
any difference about the names, by dying. It would never do to commit suicide, becnuie 
the effect on the living "twinnie" wonld be as nnpardonably rude as for an actor 
on the Belasco stage to speak or act like a real human being. Under the counsel of 
a satanie old physician one twin decides she win expose herself to pneumonia and die 
and all will be well. Mr. Knoblock overlooked a grand Idea when he didn't make the 
lady go on a McSwiney hunger strike. That would have been Intelligent In these 
profiteering days! . • " m.™«

The unveiling the other day of a memorial statue to Wilbur Wright 
at Le Mans reminds us how, despite the upheaval of war and reconstruc- 
tion, France continues to be the generous foster-mother of art and in- 
vention to all the world. Such a memorial is well, but it was a thousand ■ [ 
times better that France offered to the "Wright brothers, at the moment 
when they needed it most, the facilities and the inspiration to perfect 
what is perhaps the greatest mechanical conquest of nature that man 
has yet attained. France extended the assistance that is traditional of 
her genius to the two North Americans, struggling with a heavier-than- 
alr machine, just as she had already given it to Santos Dumont, a South 
American, in developing a dirigible lighter-than-air machine, and as still 
earlier she had brought about the perfection of the automobile, with its 
gas engine, which made possible both dirigible and airplane. 

All this is characteristic of the welcome that France invariably gives 
to the man of creative spirit, just as it is characteristic of our own coun- 
try, that in printing a photograph of the memorial The New York Even- 
ing Post should have mentioned Myron T. Herrick as one of the pooh- 
bahs who made a speech at the unveiling, but omitted the name of Paul 
Landowski, the sculptor of the monument. Why, we wonder, did The 
Evening Post lug in the name of "Wilbur Wright? "We can not blame 
the caption writer unduly; he ran true to national form, which invari- 
ably ignores the artist, who may have spent years on a work, to center 
its attention on the prominent citizen in a top hat who bores the crowd 
with more than a few ill-chosen words. Besides, it is part of the phil- 
osophy of the «ge that the producer in all lines shall starve ■while the . . 
profits of his effort go to the middlemen, who peddle, exploit and adver- 
tise it. Only we would have the newspapers more consistent. We sug- 
gest, for instance, that when next some king of Wall Street dies, The 
Evening Post shall omit his name from the obituary, mentining only 
that of the undertaker who conducts the obsequies. — THE NATION.

METROPOLITAN MAGIC 

By Clinton Burgess 
At tie last meeting of the N. C. A. Bro 
Frank Dncrot, the clever Brooklyn Headquar- 
ters' Magician and manager of the Hommann 
Magic Company, of this city, demonstrated 
two unique pieces of apparatus recently im- 
ported, one being an all-celluloid clock dial and 
pointer, beautifully made and weighing but a 
few ounces, all parts being unbreakable, and 
a most wonderful piece of workmanship. The 
other novelty was a pencil case and a red, a 
white and a blue pencil, all of which bear mi- 
nute inspection, yet npon any colored pencil 
being wrapped in paper and securely enclosed 
in the case the performer can instantly divine 
the colors of the pencils retained by the vol- 
unteer assistant. The N. C. A. headquarters 
puts its stamp of approval on these truly meri- 
torious articles and cordially invites all bona 
Sde manufacturers of or dealers in magical 
apparatus to demonstrate some of their wares 
before its members at its second meeting (held 
on third Wednesday) of any month. 

Chagnon & Company, of 497 Seventh avenue, 
this city, dealers in French works of every de- 
scription, have a number of illustrated (paper 
covered) works in that language on magic and 
the kindred arts. It is learned, however, that 
as certain worka of this nature were found to 
treat upon fortune telling, the government has 
placed a ban npon all publications that might 
have any reference to this; hence the scarcity 
in this country of late French works on magic. 
Clarence T. Hubbard had a highly interest- 
ing article occupying over a column in The 
Hartford (Conn.) Times of Thursday, Septem- 
ber 2, in which be describes the peculiarly con- 
structed fish bowl used by the late Prof. Hartz 
in his original act known as *T.ef Chapeau du 
Diable" (A Devil of a Hati. While Mr. Hub- 
bard states that Harts produced six of these 
bowls (whicb no doubt Bartz was quite capable 
of doing) it is remembered that when Hartz 
played Keith's Union Square week or Jnly 30. 
1900. over twenty years ago, he produced hut 
one bowl of fish. On this occasion Hartz's hat 
production consisted of two dozen small vari- 
colored silk handkerchiefs, two dozen (or there- 
abouts) large colored silk handkerchiefs, two 
dozen celluloid goblets, about same number of 
tin cups, three champagne bottles, hundreds of 
playing cards, silk streamers, glass lanterns 
(lighted), a wig, the Bah globe with goid fish 
(wig was the getaway) and a cape containing 
a canary. Hartz always claimed the cage was 
the only collapsible articles used by him in his 
productions, bat Mr. Hubbard's reference to 

the fish bowl would show that Prof. Hartz neg- 
lected to mention this. 

Prof, Eouis Krieger, '"The Merry Wisatd," 
returned to New Torfe Saturday. Septomier 9. 
from Stockbridge. -Berkshire County, Mass , and 
has already played several society engagements 
and is booking others well ahead.

Old Snyder, the big bull with Sells-Floto, is 
gone. And "he" is missed by many an old 
trouper, who looked upon "him" as a"frlend." 

The Sells-Floto Circus plays New Orleans for 
two days. October 2 and 3. This is the first 
large circus to visit the Crescent City this sea- 
son. 

A ^Communication from Oklahoma City, Ok., 
states that Kingiing Bros.-Burnum & Bailey's 
Circus gave two splendid exhibitions there to 
enormous patronage on September IS. 

Sari Eortbals, well-known alto player, who 
baa trooped with tbe Mighty Haas, Andrew 

Downie and Sparks' Shows, and with Guy Bros.' 
and Deltui* Bros.' Minstrels, is now located at

Wonder what "Gov. Hiram Hibindcr" and 
bis "Motorized (One Horse) Show" have done 
for themselves and the good of the business 
this season? It has been nigh onto some long 
time since the "Gov." has been heard from. 




the patients to hear the band, which is composed 
of twenty-one pieces, headed by Director A. 
Woeckener. Some of the members of the band 
were ex-service men themselves and at least a 
•few renewed old acquaintances, as well as 
meeting many of the wounded men. 

When Frank A. Cassidy recently pulled off 
a big publicity stunt for "Paramount Week" 
ha experienced difficulty in obtaining & field 
in Cincinnati large enough for a landing, be- 
cause of the hills. After two days' search: 
Cassidy found Just the spot he wanted, but 
as it was covered with a growth of clover nearly 
knee-high he had his doubts abont being able 
lo obtain the owner's consent to its use. £ong 
experience in renting circns lota from farmers 
had taught Mm that they are given to valuing 
such fields as worth tho clover's weight In 
gold^ The farmer was taking a nap w*»- 
Cassidy visited his house on Sunday after 
which wasn't a good omen either. He 
awakened and the situation put np to *. 
Subbing his eyes, he drawled, "If you'll g>. 
me half your company's bank; account and all 
your railroad stock you can have tbe field." 
Cassidy started to protest an.d was abont to 
bring all his old circus arguments into play 
when the farmer continued, "But if you'll give 
me a ride in the carnsarned thing yon can 
have the use of the field without cost," The 
farmer got his ride. 



Chester Smith, tramp comedian, of Minneap- 
olis, is reiwrted retired from tbe road for in-

broken arch in- her foot, necessitating a rest 
of undetermined duration.

The Boston SKin.luy Post of September 12 bad 
an interesting colored photo reproduction, giv- 
ing an intimate glimpse of the "home life" of 
Madame Madelon St. Claire and her two chil- 
dren, with the Sells-Floto Circus. Their 
"home" consists of a secluded corner under the 
big top.

joined the Walter L. Main Showa for the bal- 
ance of the season. 

' Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Bonhomme have closed 
a successful engagement with tho Van-Housen 
Show. Mrs. Bonbomme has purchased the Bart- 
lett Hotel nt Bnrtlett, Kansas, where she will 
welcome all troupers, and where The Blilbosrd 
is always on file. Mr. Bonhomme has joined 
the Tlowe Great London Shows to do his light 
'end heavy balancing act. 

': Bert Early, late of clown alley on tho Wal- 
ter It, Main Shows, is said to bo now meeting 
with success working a series of fairs for the 
publicity department of tbe byglenic branch of 
tbe Southern Branch American Red Cross. It 
is understood that P. Lecourt. also of tho 
Main Shows, has been engaged to go out as 
lecturer for tbe same organization. 

Jack Pfelffenbergcr, who recently closed with 
Bells-Ploto Circus, since which time he has 
been resting np at hla homo In Bcllevue, Ky. 



(near Cincinnati), made a hurried call on The 
Billboard on Tuesday of last week. Solly was 
not in the office at the time, but, according to' 
interpreted remarks, we gather that Jack is 
not yet fully decided as to his near future ac- 
tivities. 

Reports have it that the Ringling-Barnum 
Show gave no parade at Wichita, Kan., on Sep- 
tember 15. as it is alleged the city officials 
asked ?500 for the privilege. It is furtbfr 
stated that the circus management offered half 
that amount, but this was not acceptable, and 
as a result thousands ot people gathered along 
the streets over which the parade was adver- 
tised to pass were disappointed. 

Fred I>. Shafer, late boss canvasman with 
the Campbell, Bailey & Hutchinson Circns. 
who spent a week with relatives and friends in 
Cincinnati, again hit the trail for the South- 
land on Thursday of last week, his destination 
being New Orleans, with a stopover at Mem- 
phis and a few other points. He stated to 
Solly that he Intends again wintering ln Clncy, 
but is not ready to take up his hibernation so 
early. He also let it be known that he will 
be at the head of some department with the B. 
1,. Wallace Greater Shows next season. 



Sett Tracey, trombonist this season with 
Uentry Bros., has returned to his home in 
Great Falls, Moot., in order to attend to the 
sending of his children to school. Incidentally, 
he has again taken up his profession as a bar- 
ber. Commenting on Tracey's return the Great 
Falls Daily Leader includes the following: 
"Aside from barbering. Tracey has musical tal- 
ent, and with his trusty trombone he found op- 
portunity to satisfy his appetite for travel in 
the circus band. Speaking of appetites, he 
avers that his appetite kept the show from 
making any money this season. 'It's surprising 
what an appetite that outdoor life gives,' he 
comments."

The following appeared in The Denver Post 
of September IS: "A marriage of interest to 
hundreds of friends, including the stars of the 
vaudeville and circus world, has just been re- 
vealed three months and a half after the event. 
Nellie Terry, formerly of the vaudeville team 
of Terry and Elmer, became the wife. Jane 2, 
of 'Snapper' Garrison.- for thirty-two years a 
circus clown and for fifteen years with The 
Denver Post. Tbe couple is living at the 
Brnwnleigh Arms Hotel, which Mrs. Garrison

Terry was prominent in vaudeville, while Gar- 
rison was one of the most successful of circus 
laugh makers."

Wsb making, a move last week between Dal- 
las and Houston and passed thro the tows 
of Eddy, Tex. There was a small show set 
np on a lot Just a few blocks from the station, 
and as I did not see any billing for same could 
not get the name of tbe troupe. But wish to 
state that it sure was a real clean looking 
outfit, with a new top and everything in ship- 
shape. It was evidently a motor or wagon show, 
but the name was not on any wagon "or machine 
on tbe lot — that Is, that I could see. 

Oscar Wiley is at Waco and has charge of 
tbe biiiposting plant, and is a Terr contended 

"oldtimer." 

J. B. Rnstin. of tbe Gentry Shows, was busy 
In and around Houston, but Ben never stops to 
talk— only says "Hello" and "Goodbye." 

Jack Glines, well known among all circns men, 
rame into Houston while I was there, having 
just closed with the Gentry Shows, and has 
another "big" thing up his sleeve, which by 
this time is being put to practical use and get- 
ting results. 

Met. the LiUenthal Bros. They are large 
wholesale and retail feed merchants and. In 
reality, are the Jocal show agents and friends 
of the showmen. Tb*y always are on band to ' 
meet the boys, from the focal contractor to tbe 
twenty-four-hour man. and nothing is left un- 
done in the way of assistance and courtesy. 
They have a large "Circns Album." in which 
they have the antogrsphs of almost every cir- 
cus agent or manager who visits Houston. 

At the Majestic Theater in Houston yon will 
rind to greet yon on the door, Tbos (Tonky) 
Rappiport, a friend to all tbe troupers, whether 
big or small show, and who also has charge 
ot tbe billing in the ciiy. And the orchestra, 
at that same theater; it is in charge of ZJoyd 
C. Finlay, and he just makes tbe performance 
go over. I dare say that any time that thea- 
ter has a weak bill IJoyd will pat it over. He 
has as great an assortment of jaxs musical 
rOontlnned on page 59)

And the boys stand by their chef- "Our Dear 
Solly— Mncb has been said and told in many 
issues of your valued paper regarding cooks on 
advertising car No. 3 of tbe John Robinson 
Shows, and it is with regret that we, the un- 
dersigned, are forced to say that car No. 1 of 
the same show has a chef that is a CHEF, 
and what he prepares simply *melts In our 
mouths.' We did not intend to let this good 
news get out. but account of so mncb crowing 
about cooks on tbe car behind ns we simply 
most say that we would not refer to Harry 
Mbuton, our wonderful chef, by calling bim a 
■cook/ Most of the men on this car are get- 
ting so fat that if it were not near tbe end of 
the season we fear that we would not be able 
to post bills much longer. When aU is said 
and done we are willing to wager that we 
have a better chef than any other advertising 
car on earth." And this is followed by tbese

Boone's Snow Notes— Boone's Circus and Wild 
"West has played to excellent business the past 
weeks. At present the show consists of 
*v wagons, two aatos, seventy head of 
and fifty-two people. In addition to the 
. show there Is a side-show and a "cabaret" 
iter the performance, J. W. Canble, who 
has had the paper ahead of the outfit this 
season, has combined with Sam Wells, of Sayre, 
Ok., in framing; a smajl Wild West and pic- 
ture show. "Happy" and "easey" Smith have 
purchased the Walla Bros. Wild West, and 
will start out about the last of September. The 
Smith Boys have been on the Boone Show for 
the past eight years. The Boone Show will 
stay out all winter, playing Southern Oklahoma. 
Manager Pate Boone baa purchased a beautiful 
tract of land sixteen miles east and one mile 
north of Aledo, Ok., where he intends pulling 
a real frontier Roundup in the very near 
furore, and at this writing- work is about ready 
to start on the building of sheds, corral, grand 
stand and race track. 

There can be STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS in 
bronk riding, trick riding, roping, bnlldogging 
and all other sports of the frontier order. To 
have only the world's championship for the 
hands to go after would hardly be a promising 
proposition so far as local interest in the vari- 
ous States is concerned, as there would be 
many who would not even start for the honor, 
and BUch contests, held yearly, wonld bring into 
the limelight but a very small majority of 
worthy contestants. There are numerous sec- 
tions of the country wherein the contestants 
and pubic would anxiously await each fall the 
final event in their State, to learn who would 
be the STATE CHAMPIONS, arid it is Bowdy 
Waddy's presumption that local managers and 
committees would take far more Interest In 
staging and advancing the "home contest" than 
to only lend their aid to someone to pull the 
World's Championship contest toward the close 
of each season. The WORLD'S *vent will take 
ita place without any great amount of figur- 
ing, as it would necessarily follow. And the 
winners in the State events could enter for 
championships in the world's events. But, the 
main point in order to create interest in this 
— ont-of-tbe-ordlnary — sport, in either State or 
international events, is to make them, and 
keep them CONTESTS, not merely shows. And 
the all important matter toward making either 
the State or international awards official is 
that an ORGANIZATION be formed, not to 
comprise 8 few promoters and managers, but 
with the local associations and committees in 
each State as members. Now, much has been 
said on the Association {or Ogranizatkm) sub- 
ject, but most of It has been along "World's 
Championship" lines-. An Association is imper- 
ative in order t o no t only retain, but advance, 
interest, and INTEREST is what brings the 
money into the box-office. Rowdy Waddy would 
greatly appreciate letters from local committees, 
thru their secretaries or other executives, giv- 
ing their views on the above statements.* Ad- 
dregs to the Cincinnati office of The Billboard.

From Ardmore, 0k.. the Ardmore Roundup, 
staged September 15-18, was a success In every 
way, good crowds being on hand each of the 
four days, and the weather was perfect, in 
the steer roping there were 29 entries, each pay- 
ing an entrance fee of forty dollars, half of 
which was added to the purse of $1,000. ln 
addition to this Tom L. Burnett, of Iowa Park, 
gave five hundred dollars for the roper making 
the fastest time in the finals, which special 
purse waB won by Eddy Burgess, who spilled 
one loop, which brought home the bacon to the 
tune of little more than S800. The bucking 
horses belonged to James Crawford, Jr. There 
were only five men who went to the finals, and 
In the finals "Boxer" bucked from under Bryan 
Roach, who was Just about to finish the season

special features presented, one being Mrs. Lu-

ment from the arena she has lost none of her 
oldtime excellent form: the other being the 
work of Old Booger Red (the original), who, al- 
tho now 63 years old. mounted a backer the 
last day of the contest and -rode the animal 
with an ease and grace that was astonnding 
for one his age. Johnny Harrel. Jr.. and Buck 
Garrett were the principals of the local com- 
mittee, and they proved to be men whose advent 
into the contest game will be a benefit to the 

sport.

FORMER CHAMP VISITS CINCY" 
Arthur Weinberg, former world's champion 
speed and long distance skater, was a visitor 
in Cincinnati last week and paid the offices of 
Toe Billboard a pleasant call. Mr. Weinberg 
is at present with "The Cabaret Girl" Show, 
but will soon be back in the rink game, where 
his real interest lies. While in Cincinnati he 
renewed acquaintance with Fred Nail, with 
whom he started hia skating career, and the 
two spent several hours in pleasant reminis- 
cences. 

Mr. Weinberg started as a skate boy for Mr. 
Nail at the Coliseum Bink, Chicago, September 
28. 1902. He won his first race on October 8 
of that year, receiving a pair of racing skates 
as a prize. He - then won eighteen amateur 
races in a row, quite a record for a beginner. 
On January 21 of the following year Weinberg 
met George Scott, world's champion, to skate 
tbe best three out of five races, at the Coliseum. 
Weinberg won tbe first three races, thus tak- 
ing tbe title. Later he was matched with 
Howard Fielding for tbe half-mile sprint cham- 
pionship, best two out of three. Weinberg won 
this title also. 

Following this. Weinberg skated In various 
cities, under Fred Nail, until 1904: met Har- 
ley Davison ln a series of races for tbe one- 
mile championship and the 5, 10. 15 and 20- 
rnile championship, and retained hia title. In 
3906 the first six-day race ever held in the 
United States was staged at tbe Rollaway Rink 
in St. Louis and Weinberg won in this event. 

pkated many minor races in St. Louis, then in 
1907 met Harley Davison and lost the cham- 
pionship title <o him. the race being staged 
at the Jai Alal Rink in St. Louis. Later Wein- 
berg took part in many novelty races in Cin- 
cinnati, including a race against Chas. (Dare- 
devil) Hall in an auto, winning best two out 
of three, and a race against a bulldog. 

During the balance of the present season Mr. 
Weinberg intends to visit many of the leading 
rinks of tbe country, and he has arranged to

Mclaughlin meets death 

Famed Stunt Man Succumbs to In* 

juries Received While Changing 

Planes 

Syracuse. N. T.. Sept. 24.— Harry J. (Tex) 
McLaughlin, date-devi! aviator, died at the 
Crouse-Irving; Hospital here September 20 from 
injuries received last Saturday afternoon when 
he was struck by the propeller of an airplane 
during his performance. 

McLaughlin died a "good fellow." He bad 
so contract with the State fair officials to fly 
Saturday. He had been engaged for five days, 
and for five days he thrilled thousands. Satur- 
day was the day of the auto races and the 
commission thought the airplane Sights would 
not be missed. But spectators asked for a 
flight and the officials asked McLaughlin to 

fly. 

"These people expect me to fly," McLaugh- 
lin told a reporter. "I'm going to do it. I 
won't get paid, except for the advertising I'll 
get, bnt I won't lose anything, and all these 
folks won't go out of here knocking Tex Mc- 
laughlin." 

Bis flying togs were sent for, his machine 
made ready, and immediately after the end of 
the auto raceB he took to the air. Jimmy 
Curran carried him, with Shirley Short Sying 
the second of the planes. 
. High over the field he attempted to do what 
he had done hundreds of times without acci- 
dent — to climb up a jrope ladder from one plane 
to the other. A high wind was blowing, the 
planes making more than fO miles per hour. 

falling thrice to grasp the ladder, McLaugh- 
lin stood on the wing of the Curran plane and 
grabbed the ladder dangling from the Short 
plane ln his fourth attempt. As always, he 
expected the Curran plane to rise, carrying 
him clear of the whirling propeller. Instead 
they clung together for one fatal instant- 
long enough for tbe ladder to swing him thru 
the arc of the whirling propeller on tbe lower 
machine, whirling at the rate or 1,400 revo- 
lutions per minute. 

It cut thru his body like tissue paper. The 
tips of the propeller snapped off. Curran, 
sitting horrified in tbe cockpit of his machine, 
saw blood spurting from the figure of the man 
on the ladder. 

"But he climbed." said Curran_later. "He 
climbed — broken almost ln two, he hung onj 
and climbed. It took n real man and more 
to do tlmt." Short "sensed something waa 
wrong. .It would take precious time to return 
to the fair ground enclosure, so he volplaned to 
the ground Immediately. McLaughlin was 
dragged but a few feet. 



After hurried first aid treatment be was 
taken to tbe hospital, where physicians found 
the propeller blade had ripped thru the bir; 
muscles of tbe back, torn three vertebrae, 
narrowly missed opening a gash in hia kidneys. 
And let out an immense amount of blood. 

Except under the actual operation. "Tex" 
was conscious thru it ail. He talked with bia 
partners and with the physicians who attended 
him. He Joked with the interne on the ambu- 
lance. A little rest, be said, and he would 
try It again. 

His mother, wbom be met at tbe fair after a 
long separation, came to him Saturday and wae 
with him when he died. 

The body of the flyer was sent to Groton, N. 
T., Tuesday morning, where funeral services 
were held from the home of bia brother. Leon 
McLaughlin. After his death a local newspaper 
started a fund for floral tributes, and several 
hundred dollars were secured in a short time. 

W. H. I'ickens. of Chicago, manager of Mc- 
Laughlin, is credited with the statement that 
as the result of the deaths of Locklear and 
McLaughlin he is thro with the promotion of 
thrillers of this character. Pickens was also 
r-arager for Locklear. Pickens, with J. Alex 
Sloan, of Chicago, was in Batavla conferring 
with Staie Phir Commissioner Parker over the 
McLaughlin contract when the accident oc- 
curred. 

Pickens received £2.500 here last week as 
half of the amount called for in the contract. 
Of this sum he gave McLaughlin $750. Of the 
balance of $2,500 still due a considerable por- 
tion in addition is also due the McLaughlin 
estate, and will be turned over when the 
proper person has been designated.

the past eleven years and who is now en route 
with "Thunder Mountain," a big scenic vaude-

The bis night feature was a dancing spec- 
tacle, entitled "The Treasure Boi," staged by 
Mrs. Florence Colebrook Wetmnre. 

All of the officials are so enthusiastic about 
the results of the 1020 Exposition that plans 
are now under way to more to a larger site. 
The exposition has entirely outgrown Its pres- 
ent location, and it would not be surprising 
if within a year or two the city were to com- 
mence the erection of a model exposition plant 
on a 200-acre farm on the outskirts of the city. 



Altho Rain Mars Opening Day, 

Decided Gain Is Shown in 

Attendance and 

Receipts 



i Topefca, Kan., Sept. 22.— The Kansas Free 
ialr naa broken all Itg own records daring the 
fair just closed, and, according to concession- 
aires, exhibitors and carnival men, it las 
broken the rrcord of the Western fairs by 
showing a decided gain in attendance and in 
revenues. 

^Despite the fact that the fair opened on 
Monday with a soaking rain, which really de- 
layed the opening until Tuesday night and kept 
tie Wortham Shows off the lot until the even- 
ing of the second day, the fair and the Worth- 
am Shows grossed a greater business than was 
shown in any year of the free fair. The esti- 
mated attendance of the fair for the week 
. was 345,000, a gain in attendance over 1919 
of ten per cent. The races and Gordon's 
"Hawaiian Nights" showed a gain in paid ad- 
missions of seventeen per cent. The Wortham 
Shows went over the top of ell records with a 
gain of more than twenty per cent over 1919. 
Fred Beck-man. manager of the Wortham Shows 
expressed himself a 8 more than pleased with 
the Kansas Free Fair, and lie was surprised 
.at the splendid gain s shown. 

The exhibits of live stock and machinery 
were the largest ever shown in Kansas. Every 
inch or space that could be used for displaying 
machinery was occupied, ana every stall In the 
horse and cattle barns and every pen in the 
swine and sheep barns were filled, and tents 
were provided for the overflow. 

The concessionaires were pleased and spoke 
for their spots for next year. There was busi- 
ness for everyone, and everyone thrived, and 
there was no trouble to mar the week. 

ROCHEST ER EX POSITION 

'Moat Successful Ever Held, Despite 
Rain 

The Bochester (N. 1".) Exposition, September 
o to 11, was the most successful in its his- 
tory, the attendance exceeding 150,000, not- 
withstanding bad weather. 

The gates were opened on Monday morning 
in a pouring rain, but two hours later the sun 
was shining, and before nightfall nearly 
40,000 people had passed thru the stiles. Then 
a,t 7:CO o'clock that evening another deluge 
came, completely spoiling the night business. 
Again on Thursday evening and on Saturday 
evening heavy rains killed the night attendance. 

The midway shows suffered the greatest from 
theGe nicht rains, bttt- 3. M. Sliecsilcy. who fnr- 
flished all the attractions, had & fairly good 
week, and. before closing on Saturday night, 
expressed a, desire to return in 1321. This was 

<luite gratifying to Secretary Edgar P. Ed-

Kocfiester show. -

Atlanta, Ga„ Sept. 24.— The Atlanta branch 
of the National Drama League will display at

with more than 1,000 people In the cast. Mrs. 
Ulric Atkinson, president of the local branch,

GRATIFYING SUCCESS 

Attained by Northeastern Wisconsin 
Fair 

The Southeastern Wisconsin Fair, which was 
S? 1 ! *J Gr , een Bay-De I'ere, .Wis.. August 30- 
Ji-Sept. 1-2, proved to be a wonderful success. 
A meeting or the directors was held September 
14 for the purpose or checking up the fair, and 
the results were more than gratifying. Over 
$3,500 was cleared, and the total receipts were 
more than $23,000. It is estimated that over 
40.000 people attended the fair. The races were 
more than excellent, and the exhibits far sur- 
passed those of any previous years. 

One thing noticed was that the buildings are 
not large enough. The plant, as now built, 
represents an investment of better than $60,000. 
It is expected that next year $30,000 will be 
spent to enlarge the present buildings and the 
grand stand. 

The . midway did a big business: in fact, 
everyone reported it as their largest week of 
the season. 

At the directors' meeting the dates for next 
year were set for August 29, 30, 31 and Sep- 
tember 1. Plans are already under way to 
make the next year fair bigger than the one 
this year, altho people in this vicinity can not 
Imagine a better fair. More free attractions 
will be put on and everything m general made 
a. little better.

LITERALLY DRAGGED THEM OUT OF THEIR SEATS AT THE TENNESSEE STATE 

FAIR, NASHVILLE, LAST WEEK. 



STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN! FAIR MANAGERS, GET THIS: 

ON MONDAY AFTERNOON, SEPTEMBER 20th, for the first 
time in the history of the world, at a public exhibition, RINGEL STOOD 
UP on the top wing of his plane and LOOPED-THE-LOOP. 

Stop and Read That Again and Think 

what it means to see a man STAND UP ON THE TOP WING OF A PLANE 
AND LOOP-THE-LOOP. Ringel originated this/the greatest stunt in avia- 
tion. No other aerial acrobat has ever dared to attempt it Ringel accom- 
plished it for the first time at Chattanooga on Friday, September 17th, three 

days before his Nashville engagement

Jersey Ringel and His Aerial CircOS, 
Chattanooga, Tennessee: 
Dear Mr. Curtis — On behalf of tho trus- 
tees of the Tennessee State Fair, allow me 
to express our appreciation of Jersey Ringel 
and His Aerial Circus, which has been our 
principal attraction this year. 

In the thirty or forty years -which I have 
been connected -with the amusement game, I 
have never witnessed so thrilling an act as 
that furnished by Ringel, and I sincerely be- 
lieve that he will be the greatest drawing 
card in the outdoor show world in the months 
to come. 

I also take pleasure in stating to you that 
not only was our contract ..with you observed 
in every detail, but that you gave us fea- 
tures which you did not promise and 
which we had no reason to expect. We hope 
to have this big feature again next year, and 
you may reserve the dates of the Tennessee 
State Pair for Ringel and His Circus.

Dear Joe^-Tou got away yesterday before

express my personal appreciation, as well as 
that of the Tennessee State Fair for the won-

As you know, I have had occasion in the 
past few years to see Loeklear, Tinney, Wil- 
son, and all of the other outdoor amusement 
attractions, both big ana little, and I am 
sincere when I tell you that Ringel so far 
surpasses the. others that there is really no 
comparison. The rest of them were good, but. 
Ringel makes them look like amateurs. He 
stands supreme as an outdoor attraction, and 
I believe that he will be- America's greatest 
sensation next year. 

His' change from one plane to another Is 
as thrilling as that of other noted aerial 
acrobats, and his standing on the top of a 
plane while it loops-the-loop simply takes the 
breath away from every spectator. He is ab- 
solutely the best. What more could be said? 

If you want any endorsement of his work, 
let me know. It will be a pleasure to testify 
to his great value as a drawing card. 
Tours very truly,

PLEASURE BEACH 

Is Leased to Park Men 

Park Lately Acquired by City 
of Bridgeport Is To Be De- 
veloped as Amusement 
Resort 



A group of amusement park men. head by 
Elwood Salsbury. have leased Pleasure Beach 
Irem the City of Bridgeport. Conn., for a Ions 
term of years. Associated in the venture are 
Fred W. Fearce of Detroit, Mich.; John A. 
Miller the familiar Roller Coaster designer, of 
Chicago: Harry C Baker of Miller & Baker of 
Baltimore, Md.. and Frank Carney, widely 
known refreshment concessionaire, of Krvr 
Haven. 

Pleasare Beach is one of the historic amuse- 
ment park sites of this country. It is situated 
in the Bridgeport Harbor, a comparatively short 
distance form the mainland, and has the finest 
bathing beach between New York and Boston. 
It was the principal picnic resort of this sec- 
tion of the Long Island Sound country for man; 
years and was finally developed into an exposi- 
tion park and operated under the name of 
Steeplechase Island by George Tilyou of Coney 
- Island. 

It has been closed to the public for a number 
of years past and was bnt lately acquired by 
the City of Bridgeport for park purposes. In 
line with the modern trend in City Park- de- 
velopment, the Board of Park Commissioners 
desired that the most efficacious plan of de- 
velopment would be to have a flrst-class amuse- 
ment park installed on the property. 

Numerous projects from various amusement 
concessions were considered, and in the end 
the' lease was granted to Salsbury and his asso- 
ciates. 

A thoroly modern amusement park will be 
built nn the island between now and the next 
operating season, and one of the conspicuous 
features of the improvement will be a large 
industrial exposition building. 

It is estimated that the total cost will run in 
the neighborhood of one million dollars. 

VENICE 



conceded to be one of the best publicity pur- 
veyors in the amusement game, seat Mr. Don- 
aldson a season pass for the ride, and Mr. 
Donaldson, in acknowledging receipt of the 
pasteboard, wrote just a line or two as follows: 
Thanks very much for the pass, but where 
the hell is Venice?" 

"This perhaps," said Mr. Church, "illustrateB 
best how Venice has in fourteen years grown 
from a mass of sand dunes to the Atlantic 
City of the TaciHc Coast and the playground of 
lira Angeles and the West, catering to from 
100,000 to 100.000 people on Sunday and with 
a. permanent population of 30.000, There is 
no closing of the season at Venice, the resort 
caters to the pleasure loving public 3G5 davs 
out of the year, and when the East is gripped 
in the throes of snow and ice on New Year's 
Eve our amusement rides and concessions en- 
ioy the patronage of a Tegular Fourth of July 
crowd. We built a new single track coaster 
last spring, which opened on May 10. and up 
to and including Labor Day we carried a few 
shy of 600.000 people at 15c. which, I am told, 
is- equal to the business of most of the big 
coasters fn the East." 

Mr. Church said It was the intention of his 
firm, to build a number of Racing Derbies wbcre- 
ever the best locations could be secured in the 
parks of the East this fall and during his 
trip he is. on the lookout for attractive leases 
and locations. 

"The Bacing Derby has panned out a mar- 
vel, • he says. "While only three years old 
we now have fifteen rides turnout the country, 
two building in Toronto, and- Mr. Middlcton 

has just closed for a derby in France and 

England, and expects to close a number of 
deals with Eastern parks within a fortnight. 
It is one of the greatest rerides imaginable, 
laving all the thrills and interest of a real 
horse race and fills the long felt want of the 
amusement public for something new If 
Venice with its perfect weather and climate 
had the tremendous population of Greater New 
York to draw from, and the parks and resorts 



of the East had our climate, what a happy 
lamily we amusement people would be. 

•1 am enjoying every minute of my trip and 
must say you have in the East and Middle 
West many beautiful amusement parks and best 
of all everybody reports the biggest year in 
history. There is a splendid opportunity for 
the amusement, men of the East to operate in 
Venice during the winter months and many have 
already learned of this fact, and Eastern 
amusement men will always find a hearty wel- 
come from the showmen of the Pacific. 

"It may be interesting to note that while the 
West has largely depended upon the East for 
new amusements in the past I find that this 
year 'East Is West,- in other words the only 
three NEW amusements to be found in the East- 
ern parks and resorts this season originated In 
Venice, namely: The 'Great American Racine 
Derby,* "Noah's Ark' and the Tig Slide." "

the firm of Prior & Church, of Venice, Cal.,

Mr. Church is one of the most prominent 
amusement men in this country and has a host 
of friends in the amusement park world. Be

the parks and resorts, and especially the Great 
American Racing Derby rides, of which he is 
the inventor, patentee and Joint owner with 
Mr. Prior. 

While conversing with Mr. Donaldson of The 
Billboard Mr. Church recited an incident which 
happened ten years ago and got quite a Iangh

Mr. Church went to Venice, Cat., then a 'very 
small amusement resort, in fact only four years

the "Race Thru the Clouds." from which the 
firm has grown in pace with the resort until 
it now has the largest amusement interests 
on the Pacific Coast. Shortly after the com-

St. Paul. Minn., Sept. 20.— An effort to de- 
fraud the Minnesota State Fair out of nearly 
J400. which had been paid in for tickets, waa 
revealed yesterday with the conviction on petty 
larceny charges of thirteen young men who had 
served during fair week as gatekeepers and 
ticket-sellers. 

Accordinc to evidence heard by F. H. Glbbs, 
Justice of the peace of Rose Township, ticket 
takers returned tickets to sellers Instead of de- 
positing them in the boxes, and held out the 
money when the tickets were sold a second 
time. The practice was reported to fair head- 
quarters by a visitor who had detected the 
scheme. 

Justice Glbbs ordered fines totaling J790 after 
confessions had been obtained from all of the 
young men Involved.

Ohio River, also placing his rjniedy with a 
druggist in each city, lie was concluding with 
one of the largest chains of drug stores in 
the Queen City arrangements for the handling 
of the remedy last week. From Cincy he de- 
parted on a route that would carry him thru 
Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, 
Louisiana, and then east toward Florida. 

The following from George B. Frazer, at the 
time in Omaha: "On my way to the Coast 1 
stopped for a few days in Chicago, visiting a 
few of the boys. Met Jack Dalton iDr. J. C. 
Miles), of oil fame, and a 'big-time' medicine 
man. who is certainly doing big business' there. 
Here in Omaha mot l)r. Schneider and Warwick, 
working from a big car and getting the money. 
Said they had been here a year, with the ex- 
ception of a couple months this summer while 

on the road- It simply shows that 'clean meth- 
ods* pay. I believe in working to a crowd on 
the street, as tho one thought they have brains, 
instead or treating them like •boobs.' I am 
practically a newcomer in this business, but 
1 believe I have the right idea."

Just one thing that Gasoline Bill has to con- 
tend with: Some time ago a knight shot a 
pipe that could easily have been an incorrect 
and damaging statement— if written by some 
other person than himself. In the pipe his 
name was spelled ont way and the signature 
was spelled one way and written over it spelled 
otherwise. With the supposition that every man 
should know how to spell his own name at 
first trial, what would be your (anybody's) 
conclusion? Anyway, the lad failed to see it 
published and wants to know the whvs and 
wherefores. But. this last time he signs it 
with a typewriter, and we will therefore hold 
the »ews it contains until signed in a proper 
mannem. It might be ail right, and again It 
might be all wrong.

During our confab with J. Frank Haithcox 
at The Billboard office last week numerous 
points of pitchdom were discussed one of which 
has often appealed to ns as worth mentioning:, 
and that is: The number of knights, formerly 
big money getters, possessors of wonderrul abil- 
ity, personality and all that is needed to do 
big things, who are now seeminclv content to put 
over propositions of but medium caliber. Is 
it that they have lost no small amount of self- 
confidence, or that they think their personal 
appearance has lost a part of its commanding 
prestige? We can recall several whose person- 
ality, from an appearance standpoint, could 
hardly be better: whose experience has taught 
them various and proper "systems," and who 
would still be "big fellows" if thev f-o.ild but 
stop dreaming of the days that have past, or 
what they might do, and with the adapting of 
present-day methods make use of their excellent 
qualities, and get busy.

told him to not pass up a town (Alma), and 
as it was on bis route he stopped off there, 
which looked the worst he ever saw. Finding

cided to donate three bucks (the reader) to 
the public fund. Having but thirty belts in

= _ Mn,sn ** p i B **«-«-WN INDUSTRY JH 55 no one in sight, he lit his torch and sat down 

and dreamily played one tune on the old banjo. 
To his utter surprise, after 1 a few minutes, 
there was a big push in front of htm and lie 
got busy, selling the thirty belts right off the 
reel. Says he told 'em he had more stock in

From Dr. Geo. M. Heed: "I toot fa the Ohio 
State Fair last week, and will now get back to 
work. My wife and I had a fine time all week. 
1 met Al Isaacs, selling jewelry for Mr. Arnold, 
who had the jewelry concession. H. P. Atkinson 
;>nd wife, with can openers, are in the city, also 
W. H. Spencer, with solder. Prof. Gilbert 
Thayer left for Indianapolis, after four weeks 
in Columbus with his book, and did well. Wil- 
liams, the calculator roan, left for Tonngs- 

town. O., after six weeks' excellent business in 
Columbus. I read where Dr. Herb. Becker says 
if pitchmen would only tell one another the 
truth about towns that are open and about the 
readers. Yes. Dr.. but it seems some think it 
a big thing to steer one another wrong. The 
meanest man in the world ia a. pitchman that 
will send another pitchman in to a closed terri- 
tory — when be knows It is closed. He is not 
worthy of being called a pitchman. I try to keep 
posted and belieye I have the reputation of 
telling the boys straight, and very few of the 
knights who come to Colnmbns that do nor 
hunt me up to find ont about towns. I can 
tell them about any Town In Ohio, and tbe most 
of the towns from Pittsburg to Philadelphia, on 
the P. R. K. t or from Harrisburg to Baltimore. 
I can't understand why one pitchman would 
want to steer another wrong. What does it get 
him? And many a time the pitchman that got 
n wrong steer Is In need of money badly. I 
know it was the case witn me three years ago. 
I had been sick, and was down and out, and 
nsked a pitchman In Pittsburg where I could 
■work and get a few dollars. He says: 'I will tell 
you Just the town,' and I went there — spent my 
last dollar for car fare — found tbe man who 
sent me bad been there the Saturday before and 
bad a shake down. Bnt as luck had it I met 
a man I had known a year ago. He toot me 
Into another town where I got a little money. I 
thint if the boys would all tell, one another right 
we would make more money, also have more 
open towns and cheaper readers. So. ■ boys, 
let's try to help each other all we can. and, any 
time you are in Columbus, come to see me: yoa 
are always welcome at my home, and can al- 
ways depend on me telling yon straight. I am 
informed by Dr. W. H. Spencer, that his young 
friend. Dr. Otto Hunter, who has been holding 
down Baltimore with, his herbs and inhalers 
for the past year, is still on the job. also that 
he intends to get married this montn."

Bock Falls, Til.. Sept. 22.— In about two 
weeks the World's Fair Shows will close the 
most successful season of their career jind the 
equipment will be stored for the winter in 
some city close to Chicago. The "Sunny South" 
did not appeal to Manager Dodson this season. 

Business at Davenport, la., last week, was 
not up to expectation, but it was far from a 
bloomer. Pour shows in two months seemed to 
be just about enough for the amusement loving 
public of that city and vicinity. 

George Bennett and wife, who have had the 
"Iloneymoon Trail" all season, left at Dav- 
enport to join the Zeidman & Pollie Shows in 
the Sooth, 

B. H. Taylor now has the "Honeymoon Trail." 
and surprised everyone by erecting the 6how, 
ready to open, in one honr and five minutes. 

Owner O. G. Dodson and General .Agent Al 
(Fisher have been in Chicago for the past sev- 
eral days and the lots there may be the out- 
come for a few weeks. 

West Chicago is the next stand, tinder the 
auspices of the American Legion. — W. J. KE-

day at the Minnesota State Fair^ in M T nne-

The PIHboard an error occurred which made it 
read that this sum was taken in on the week's 
stand. 

What the "Falls" grossed besides the first 
day we don't know, but we think, it was plenty 
judging from the splendid siart. TMll Rodeors.

county fair in Nebraska, and with plenty of

It's a little bard to realize that but a few 
Weeks more and the hie thirty-car Rubin & 
Cherry Shows will be stored away in winter 
quarters. 

The shows started In their fair season witji 
the Erie (Pa.) Exposition, making a Jump of 
400 miles, and right back orer the same ter- 
ritory to Norristown. Ta., playing Xorristown 
as a still week, and then opened their ten 
straight fairs wltb Wilmington. Del., on Labor 
Day. Erie, Ta., has a beautiful exposition 
grounds, but notwithstanding that the shows, 
rides and concessions were not laid out to tlie 
best advantage the show's gross receipts were 
bigger than any other season for that fair. The 
secretary informs tnat there will be a number 
of changes made next year in the geenral plan 
of locations. Norristown, under auspices "of the 
Woodmen, was big, altho the long Jump and 
rain gave only four days' play. Wilmington, 
Del., was not quite up to the standard of 
State fairs. It was the stand last week and 
tne caravan's first visit there. Reading was 
far in excess of any fair played last season. 
There were a number of visitors from Phila- 
delphia during the date at Norristown. Phila- 
delphia was the borne ot Manager Rubin Gru- 
berg in bis earlier days, before he located at 
Montgomery, Ala.j and each evening he enter- 
tained friends and relatives. Mr. Gruberg and 
bis family drove to Phllly almost every day in 
their new car. 

Another long run to Roanoke. Va., where 
the shows are playing the fair this week. Be- 
cause of a disabled engine, it was 10 p.m. Mon- 
day when the train pulled in. Trainmaster 
Sheppard bad the cars switched alongside the 
fair grounds and the "boys" worked bard 
nearly all night, as today was Children's Day. 
Josie Nagata's live rides opened at 10 a.m., 
and by noon, when the children commenced to 
arrive, everything along the midway was open. 
With good weather it looks like everybody will 
bave a wonderful week here. 

The show is now carrying twenty-two paid 
attractions and about 120 concessions. Lynch- 
burg (Va.) Fair for that week, of September 22.

GREATER SHEESL.EY 3HOWS 

Allentown, Fa., Sept. 22, — Yesterday CTues- 
day) was the official opeadns; of the Great Allen- 
town Fair here. the. the preceding Monday found 
the entire grounds ready for the first of the 
big crowds, as advertised. Toe Greater Shees- 
ley Shows occupied the midway. 

A goodly-sized crowd: found its way into the 
grounds on Monday, where the midway attrac- 
tions became toe center of Interest. Tuesday 
was children's day, bringing thousands of the 
future "statesmen and business men," snd 
their possible "helpmates" out to the grounds. 
It was a big day for the midway snows, the 
various exhibits and the free acts on the infield, 
altho the grandstand was not Jammed, by any 
means, owing to the fact that children pre- 
dominated; they whose fancies have not yet 
trended to sports. However, the low, barricaded 
circle of the infield is due to be well peopled, 
and the grand stand well filled, what with the 
reserve seats practically taken from Wednes- 
day to Saturday, on which latter day the auto 
races will be staged. 

.With, the Greater Sneealey Shows now is Cap- 
tian Sorcbo's Submarine Show, opened with the 
caravan for the first time here at Allentown. 
It is proving quite a popular attraction, demon- 
strating the workings of the under water craft 
and the deep sea divers. Joseph Kalama ana 
Leila Kalama have Joined "Brother Johnny" ln 
the Hawaiian show, making the personnel of 
that outfit one that can offer the best in Ha- 
waiian music and dancing. Mr. and Mrs. Fred 
Barrett, concessioners, have left for a week or 
ten days to see the home folks at Providence. 
R. I. Tonng "Johnny" Sheesley has relin- 
quished his claim ot trainer pro-tem of ponies, 
and horses in deference to the priority of his 
second semester of 1920 at Notre Dame Acad- 
emy. Johnny left last week to resume his 
studies there. Harry Haines is a new speeder 
on the Sheesley Motordrome, pretty clever, we 
say, and being well inspired by the experts.

Mr. and Mrs. J. A. (Dad) Straley have been 
making independent fair dates with their con- 
cessions, including soft drinks, cigaret shooting 
gallery and kewpie wheel. They report an 
excellent week at Galax. Va., and worked at 
Johnson City, Tenn., last week, with Rome, 
Ga., to follow. "Dad" cplnes that it Is easier 
io pass thru life with a few worries and nice 
profits than to wrangle with the cares of a 
caravan manager, and the ledger balancing on 
the right side — sometimes. 

In a recent issue of an exclusive movie week- 
ly publication the following was contained in an 
article adverse to carnival interests — the first 
All has noticed to speak so openly in an article 
of this nature: "Determined effort Is being 
made by the Better Business Bureaus of the As- 
sociated Advertising Clubs of tbe World to weed 
out tbe parasite and dishonest, fly-by-night mer- 
chants. As yet no concerted effort has been 
initiated for the squelching of the more danger- 
ous carnival company." 



The editors of some small town papers ad- 
mit that the people must have outdoor amuse- 
ment (nlong with their patronizing the local 
merchants), but intimate that the communities 
should have parks for this purpose. Wonder 
bow much it costs to operate a small town 
park, with a band, shows, rides and other at- 
tractions — and where the continued patronage 
required for its upkeep would come from, and 
how long it would be before the natives would 
yell for a "new administration"? 

Al S. Cole, of the World at Home Shows,

motion field. Al holds the honors of promoting 
the largest automobile contest in Hamilton.

cessfully put over in those cities by any carnival 
agent. Al claims that his promotion at Chil- 
licothe, O., where the World at Home Shows 
will reature the Farmers' Fall Festival, will 
eclipse, all previous efforts. Go to it", Al; it's 
the hustler that gets the results.

Thousands watched the riders, and as Mr. 
lUM-Kaiiinn stepped from the machine he was 
pltut<i£rrapbed by a newspaper man on the 
grounds. 



Have yon noticed that in the majority of 
cases it is either a merchant or 4i conscientio^s ,, 
worker for the •'community's welfare" who 
never sees merit in any carnival attraction In 
statements in local papers? All claims there 
is real merit and entertainment in many attrac- 
tions with carnivals, altho he admits there 
should be many more of them, and the out- 
door pleasure-seeking public looks at it in the 
same ll^ht. And he v-ho . would "condemn a 
whole piece of machinery because a few wheels 
need fixing" loses the force of his argument 
with those of "purchasing" Interest, who would 
not so openly exjKise their prejudice, but 
instead would, entourage the replacing of worn 
out "parts'* where they are needed. In other 
words, a large majority of the people, every- 
where, need and seek wholesome outdoor recrea- 
tion, and of the carnival variety, and if the 
attractions are clean they will have there, re- 
gardless of unjust opposition.

Alyne Potter*, prima donna with Wortharn

an. Mrs. W. E. Croft*, -wife of the concessioner,

the ward of all the "family" is the daughter of 
Dan Meggs and wife. It is said the little one, 
only five months old, has developed a hearty 
laugh that can be heard across the midway. By 
the way. the "'boys'' on Wortham Shows never" 
forget Tony Ybanez. who was born on the twen- 
ty-second day of September. Last year Tony 
received a handsome sold chain. This season 
he was surprised when a Hutchinson, Kan., 
jeweler walked in and measured his finger for 
a handsome ring, bearing the design of the B. 
P. O. Elks. And again, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas 
Rankine gave their boys a treat this summer. 
The trio spent two weeks with their parents on 
the show. To give them a touch of real show 
life Tom started them at the business in a busi- 
nesslike way. They were ticket-takers at dif- 
ferent shows.

WQRTHAM' S WO RLD'S BEST 
At the Kansas State Fair 

Concluding a long run from the Topcka (Kan.) 
Free Fair, the b'g Clarence A. Wortham World's 
ltest Shows rolled into the State Fair grounds 
nt Hutchinson before dark Sunday, and at once 
lwsan unloading. The grounds were thronged 
when the shows -arrived, and the sight of trans- 
ferring them to the big reservation was watched 
with interest until late at night. 

Monday morning found the big caravan in the 
last stages of preparation, and Monday evening 
everything was ready to open. The trains 
brought extra cars, which were provided for 
the transportation of Col. Moss* Wild West 
Show, -which was added at Topeka. Two of 
the cars carried a fine bunch of "outlaw" 
horses, while a passenger coach was provided 
for the cowmen and rough riders. 

The Kansas State Fair opened under the 
most auspicious circumstances. Everything here 
last year was on hand- this season, but it was 
almost lost with the numbers of other new 
attractions added. One of these is "Over the 
Falls." Dan Meggs, manager of the ride, 
proved himself some promoter. He saw a fly- 
wheel on a small tractor spinning around and 
a happy thought hit him — why was it not to 
the mutual interest of the tractor man and 
himself to show how the tractor could be used 
in en-ergency? Dan took the tractor man mtoi 
the idea, and the little machine was installed 
to furnish power to run "Over the Falls." 
And Dan nt once set about overhauling his 
regular engine. 

The visit of the shows was a Hind of "home- 
coming" to Mr. and -Mrs. D. H. Bergman and 
Mrs. Harry Brown, concessioners. Hutchinson 
is Mrs. Brown's home. Last year the Berg- 
mans were with the Wortham Shows. So the 
two visitors and "home folk" enjoyed a pleas- 
rut wek with the big company.— BEVEBLx"

HARRY McKAY. Reen 512. SS So. Dearborn St. 

Chicago. 



One of the most unusual sights ever seen 
on a carnival lot was witnessed on Monday at 
Vancouver, -when a crowd of children and 
grown-ups braved a continual, heavy rain to at- 
tend the Vancouver, B. C, Fair, and practically 
insisted that the various Greater Alamo Shows' 
attractions open and provide amusement for the 
visitors. Thruont the day and evening rain fell 
in great quantities. It was Children's Day and 
they did not let the rain spoil their pleasure. 
Show after show opened and then the whip and 

Ferris wheel. Thru the downpour the kiddies 
and elders rode and treked from- attraction to 
attraction, eager to spend their money for 
amusement. Portlanders nave nothing on Vnn- 
couverites when it comes to enjoying outdoor 
amusements while rain- falls in torrents. 

It has been arranged that the Greater Alamo 
should exhibit in Vancouver during the three 
pre-fair days. Bain prevented this and also 
prevented opening on the first days of the 
exhibition. Wednesday waa the scheduled big 
day. Business was entirely suspended and ar- 
rangements had been made to care for a greater 
crowd than one year ago. Tuesday night the 
heavens opened and at night a heavy rain was 
still falling, with no signs of abatement. 

Rain has been a constant visitor with the 
Greater Alamo since the- fair dates started at 
Centralis, Wash. The Washington State Fair 
:tt Yakima follows Vancouver, with the Ore- 
gon state Fair at Sttlem next. General Agent 
Harry F. Hofer )» expected on tbe show daily 
and will announce the four California dates that 
follow Albany, Oregon, on the route to the • 
Arizona State Fair at Phoenix. General Mana- 
ger H. M. Wangh continues to Improve rapidly 
and now personally directs company details. 
The airplane, recently secured by Wangh & 
Hofer. was sold to an aero company.— o. M, 
CASEY. 

GLOTH GREATER SHOWS 



After a successful two weeks' stsnd st Am- 
bridge. Pa., Gloth's Greater Shows moved over- 
land to Rochester, Fa., where despite bad 
weather conditions tbe entire snow opened on 
Monday ; night. 

The new ride, the "Seaplane." which Joined 
at Ambridge, is making at big bit with the peo- 
ple of Rochester. The Athletic Show, trader 
the management of Steve Passss, Is a btg> draw- 
ing card and many flue matches are. polled 
with the local "champions." Frank Toeman is 
manufacturing more ice In this town and Is 
certainly pleasing the folks of this town with 
his troupe ot fancy figure skaters. John Smith, 
in charge of the carousel, met with an accident 
while repairing the lighting system, bnt is 
now recovered. Robert Gloth has had some fine 
spots booked around Pittsburg, and Is confident 
these stands will produce. Mg results.— KID 
FOX. 

JOHN FRANCIS SHOWS 



The John Francis Shows plsyed their first 
week In Oklahoma at Nowata, and if all spots 
to follow In the State are as good the mem- 
bers of this caravan have a good fall season 
ahead of them. 

NeodosM. the (nreceding week, was very 
good, considering wentl er conditions. Bartles- 
vllle. Ok., follows Nowata under tbe anspices 
of the American Legion. Two new shows Joined 
at Nowata and "Babe" Francis. late of the 
Veal Bros. Shows, has Joined with two conces- 
sions. The lineup of concessions now consists of 
Billle Blchards, with six; H. W. UcDaniels, 
four; George Atkins, four; Joe Rlgley, Harry 
Cross, Ed Snapp and "Blondy" Toll, one each.

FIELDS GREATER SHOWS 



The J. 0. Fields Greater Shows played Odell. 
111., on Monday and Tuesday, and on Thursiar. 
Friday and Saturday exhibited at Lexington. III., 
alt In the rame'week. This made fonr separate 
celebrations for the show in two weeks. At 
Odell all the concessions ran out of stock. Lex- 
ington was also good, as was tbe show's stand 
nt Ashland, 111. Sawyer, with dolls, and Watts, 
with nitch-till-ryon-wln. both of the Clifton-

grove, who was in the city to obtain Hawaiian 
singers and dancers, was a Tery welcome 
caller at the Kansas' City Office of The Bill- 
hoard. He is very enthusiastic about this 
Wortfaam Show, saying he had been with them 
four years and during that time they had been 
constantly adding Improvements and new fea- 
. tures until now its title, "World's Best Shows," 
is well deserved.

Mr Seymour had the GI11U completely cleaned

Kansas Citians who said the Giilis could not

CYRUS JACOBS AND ©EN* POSTMAN, 
manager and assistant manager of the Globe 
Theater, popular home of popular vaudeville, 
have Just announced a very interesting change 
in their picture program. Commencing Thurs- 
day night, September 23, only Paramount fea- 
ture pictures will be shown. All short reels 
will be abolished, and these feature five-reel 
pictures running fifty minutes will be presented 
This change in pictures will* in no way interfere 
with the regular vaudeville bills of* six acts. 

THEATRICAL CIRCLES in Kansas City were 
treated to a sensation last week when an Okla- 
homan named Harry Smedley breezed into town 
and announced that he had all the money in the 
world and was going to organize the best and 
fastest tab. sliow ever.; He engaged Tex Ellis, 
a well-known blackface comedian, before coming 
to town and Immediately got the agents here 
busy framing his show. Everything moved 
swimmingly for about four days.' About fifteen 
people were engaged, rehearsals taking place, 
etc.. but when the show was ready to move the 
discovery was made that "all the money in the 
world" had diminished so rapidly that there 
was none left to lift the wardrobe, pay the 
agent or buy the tickets, and the start was 
-postponed from Saturday morning to night, 
then to S'unday morning and finally Sunday 
night, when the people, "getting wise," de- 
serted, and the said Smedley left without his 
show.

After an all summer's grind thro the North- 
west States the Hall-Boby Shows are back in 
Kansas, headed South. The Northwest was not 
as good as in former years. . However, the 
management says they have, a goodly sum on. 
the right side of the ledger and have no 
"kick" coming. Several old showmen Joined 
at Bancroft, 2Ceb. Among them were Link 
Crossman, with three concessions, and George 
Westerman with two. While at Carthage, 
S. X>., Mrs. Boby received the sad news of the 
death of her mother at Henderson. Ky., and 
Immediately left to attend the funeral. She 
rejoined the show at Rerasen. la. 

J. H. Roby visited the Brundage Shows at 
Council Bluffs, la. A nice, clean outfit, saya 
J. H. During the Centerville, S. D., engage- 
ment Messrs. Hall and Boby sold their swing 
to Messrs. Burk and Sallis, of Graceville, Minn. 
The "Cabaret" outfit was also sold to the same 
parties. 

It begins now to look as tho the Wild West 
was a reality for next season. While at 
Carthage. S. D., Hall and Roby purchased 
six head of wild horses, which nave been 
shipped to winter quarters. General Agent 
Doc Hall caught the show on the run from . 
Omaha to Kansas, shook bands all around said 
he heard the call of the South, said goodby 
and was gone. 

Chief Johnnie Butter, full-blooded Sioux In- 
dian, has joined the Athletic Show. The Chief 
attracts a great deal of -attention from the na- 
tives when he appears in his full Indian re- 
galia and war paint. The Chiefs wife also 
will be connected with the show, meeting lady 
wrestlers. Show folks are coming and going 
so fast that It is almost Impossible to get the 
names of arrivals and departures. Doc Hall 
says everybody should call at the office and 
register. 

The management has announced that the sea- 
son will last for a few weeks yet, but no long 
winter tour will be made this year. — JDANITA

Taylorville, HI., Sept. 23.— The Great Pat- 
terson Shows are furnishing: the attractions 
here for the Loyal Order of Moose Fall Festival. 
Business thus far has been the greatest ever 
done in Taylorville by the Patterson Shows, 
which speaks a lot, as this is the twelfth 
time James Patterson has entertained Taylor- 
ville people with his attractions. 

Mr. Patterson returned today from Kansas 
City. He reports the operation on Mrs. Pat- 
terson a snecess, and that she will soon be out

Among those of the Patterson Shows at Bnl-

Carl Cor. treasurer, came near loosing his 
mascot, "Esmeralda." The terrier made a bad 
"playmate" for the cub liens, but was rescued 
in the nick of time. 

"Bom," one of the big bulls, drank too much 
water Sunday, that happened to contain a 
quantity of soda potash. Keeper George Kit-

says he came near causing the teams hitched 
to the band wagon to make a "run." He and 
his wife ride in an old rickety bucgy behind 
an old skate, and they pulled in ahead of the 
band, which caused a commotion. Grinnell's 
boxing midgets continue to he the big noise in 
the circus side-show. T. J. Tearout entertained 
forty-five small newsboys at the shows Tuesday 
evening.— CYRUS D. SIMPSON*.

"RANDOM RAMBLES" 



By WXIXIAH JTJDXINS HEWITT 

Gypsies on a carnlral lot equal trouble con- 
tinuously. 

A carnival Is something one does sot expect 
tar tile price of admission. 

The reason many get no place Is because 
they stick to the same old rut season after 
season. 



W. H. Midaleton- suggests this 'title for a 
carnival, "Amusements on tie Lot." Yea, 
verily; list one is lar better tban many now 
In use. 

We will now "bill". ana build the snows. 
The latter Is no good unless you do the former. 
Wbat use has one for a razor if lie lets a 
barber stave him? 




WANT FOR THEIR LONG LIST OF SOUTHERN FAIRS 

a Uniformed Band that can play and not stall. Also Girls for Adam 
Erbes' Night in Japan. Bob Chambers wants A-l Man to take charge of 
his Cook House. "Wire at once. WANTED— Live Freak or Midget, lady 
preferred, for Platform Show. State lowest salary. Wire at once. George 
Howard would like to hear from Tom Edeburn and Sailor Allen. Address 
K. F. SMITH, care Show, Charlottesville, Va., Sept. 27 to Oct. 2. 



A prominent concessionaire said recently: "I 
would rather have my pan game tban to own 
« whole carnival organization." We replied: 
"And they call themselves SHOWMEN." 



The only way ont is to raise the standard. 
There are some things on the lots and under 
canvases that have no more right to be termed 
"amusements" than a circular saw has use for 
rubber teeth. v 



Ed Wynn has a musical comedy called "Ed 
Wynn's Carnival." We suggest that men and 
women of the outdoor show world see this 
Bhow. This I3 one "Carnival" that no towns 
or cities will be "closed" to.

nailing It back. Further inquiry brought the 
information that this was the first nail that 
had been driven In the town in 81 years I 
then again asked the Mayor what he said the 
fee per day would be, and he said S200." 
There was a big laugh coming over me, so I 
immediately ran to the hotel and checked out 
without even as much as saying- 'so long'," 

"What? A carnival? Get out of my office." 
There will be a day when this will be the 
reception: "So you represent o carnival? Come 
right In; take that chair: have a good cigar 
What are your very lowest terms to play our 
city? Am glad yon came. The City Council 
has been trying for several years to get you to 
play our city, as you know, Mr. General 
Agent." 

Charles Andress, of Great Bend. Kan., baa 
learned the art of real living. After clrcnslng. 
doing magic and other things in show business 
in general, he retired to a farm to reap the 
reward of an ideal be had harbored in his 
mind during all the trials and tribulations and 
-successes of his varied career "on and off the 
lots." A farm, real estate and IT. S. bonds 
are bis sssets In plenty. Good luck to you. 
C. A., farmer-ebowman, Great Bend, Kan. 

Ethel Bobinson, E. F. Carrnthers and Fred 
M. Barnes — May we solicit your co-operation 
In putting over our, conception, known as "The 
Street CHADTAUQCA"? The writer will be 
pleased to submit the original plan as submitted 
to the Liberty Loan Committee In New York, 
which was heartily endorsed by G-uy Emerson, 
of the Chase National Bank, who' was at the 
time head of the Liberty Loan Fub8clty 
Bureau. 



George H. Bamilton, former carnival, park. 
Wild West and exposition showman, is one of 
the factors in the motion picture business now. 
His card reads: "Monkey Business. "Son of 
Tarzan"'— office. "11th Tree." Quite novel we 
sbould say. 

Now Is the time to make preparations for the 
getting of attractions for season 1921. Do it 
■while your show is in motion. Not when the 
season Is over, and surely you will not wait 
until a few weeks before the next one is to 
open. Now is the time — not then.

W. 0. Fleming Is a real general agent. Many 
want to know how he does it. That*? easy. 
He studies conditions surrounding his business 
and governs his nativities accordingly. He knows 
his business and attends to it. That's all there 
is to it in a "nutshell." 

C. Frank Stillman. the designer and chief of 
construction of Columbia Park, North Bergen, 
N. J., has had enough offers to build parks 
since he finished this one ta keep him bn-sv 
for at least twenty years. So you see, it did 
not hurt Mr. Stillman to buiid a good park, 
which Columbia is. 

John Wendler, the hustling selling agent of 
the Allan Herschell Company, Inc., of North 
Tonawanda. N. Y., was in New York recently 
looking for "wild merry-go-round horses." After 
loosing at the orders for carousels be bad on 
his books there's no wonder be said "wild 
merry-go-round horses."

Carnival Owners and Managers — You are not 
fooling anyone but yourselves by not publish-

any kind is really wanted it can be obtained. 
What's the secret — you say? Ah. that's the 
secret. You can not hide a train of cars, 
George, my boy. 

Nellie-^evelle was not forgotten by the out- 
door showmen. Think of it. about two-thirds 
I of the money collected for her fund came from

ZEIDMAN & POL LIE SHOWS 
Playing Fine String of Southern Fairs 

The Zeldman & Pollie Exposition Shows are 
Invading the South on their second annual tour 
ond are now exhibiting at the East Tennessee 
Fair at Sweetwater. The shows are doing a 
very fine business, as it is the largest organi- 
sation that has ever been seen at this fair. 
The shows arrived on Sunday from Maryville, 
Tenn., where they finished a very big week's 
business under tbe auspices of tbe American 
Legion. This was one of the so-called "closed" 
towns, but the Legion had no difficulties in 
staging its festival, and the shows' were wen 
patronized. Every business' house in Maryville 
closed on Tuesday and a general holiday was 
declared in honor of the American Legion, and 
the shows had one of the banner days of the 
season. 

From here the Zeidman & FoHie Exposition 
goes to tbe People's Agricultural Fair at Salis- 
bury. N. C, with the Northeast Georgia Fair, 
at Gainesville, Ga.: the North Georgia Fair, at 
Borne; Early County Fair, Blafcely, Ga., and 
the Colquitt County Fair, Moultrie, Ga., to 
follow. 

While playing Knoxvllle, Tenn.. Colonel Lit- 
tleton bad an operation on bis eye performed, 
which greatly benefited him. The Colonel has 
now fully recovered his eyesight and is able 
to resume his performances with his Society 
Horse Show, featuring "Lady Fanchon." 

General Agent Fells Blei visited the Expo- 
sition Shows in Knoxville. and reported that 
the season is booked solid, with "all railroad 
contracts made. Be left for Borne, Ga., to 
help advertise tbe fair at that place,, and 
also the other fairs that are to be played by 
this organization. — HOLLAND.

SAN FRANCISCO 

By STUABX B. BUMBAB 
605 fantagei Theater Bids. 



San Fiancisco's proposed all night movie thea- 
ter received its death blow when representatives 
of a number of prominent welfare and social 
oijsaniaztions appeared before the Board of 
Supervisors at their meeting last Monday and 
filed formal protests against the venture. The 
protests were based on the gorund that the 
operation of such a show house constituted 
a menace to the public morals. It had been 
planned to operate the theater for the benefit 
of showfolk- and others whose occupations pre- 
cluded their attending; the theaters during the 
regular hours. 

Tiny and James Brennan (The Two Tiny Tots> 
visited The Billboard office and announced that 
they have just secured a long route from Levy 
& Ackerman. which will keep them busy thru- 
out the winter months. While working at 
Richmond, September 19. Tiny Brennan injured 
her ankle during her dance number. However, 
she expects to be at work in a week, or ten 
days. The Rrennans send regards to all tab. 
folk. Their permanent address is care of The 
Billboard's San Francisco office. 

Tot Young writes that he is doing well wltB 
Sam Griffin's minstrels. He is producing "The 
Return of the Barktown Recruits," the big hit of 
the second part of the olio. - 

Charles H. Wilkinson, "Lumber Jack Char* 
ley," was a. Billboard visitor during the week. 
following a successful engagement at the CaB- 
fornia State Fair in Sacramento. Wilkinson 
Stopped the show on closing night at Sacramento 
when he sang with the band, and took bow after 
bow. He will sing at the Fresno County Fair, 
after visiting in San Francisco for a few days. 
Bixie Alton writes from Los Angeles for word 
of her sister, Theda Alton, whom she believes 
to be in or near San Francisco. Miss Dixie 
has important news for her Bister and would 
like to hear from her. 

A move-neat has been launched here among the 
chorus girls to boost for Harding for president. 
Bee Winsome, one of the leading feminine fig- 
ures of the Marcus Show of 1020, which opened 
at the Columbia Theater on the night of Sep- 
tember 20, is one of the leaders in the move- 
ment and has offered the services of the wom- 
en of her company to the Bepublican State 
Central Committee. 

Two Orpheum and two Hippodrome acts en- 
tertained the convalescent soldiers at the Let- 
terman General Hospital recently. The enter- 
tainment was conducted under the auspices of 
Adolph Dohring, stage director, and Mr. Mc- 
Sweeten, musical director. Numbers on the 
program included Haig, in "playtime," and 
Sidney Phillips In soncs and stories, from the 
Orpheum. and Clifton Kramer. Joe Coffman and 
Isabella Carroll, from the Hippodrome. 

Rumor, has it along the Bialto here that vaude- 
ville actors and actresses playing Fantages Cir- 
cuit will be reimbursed for additional money 
paid out, owing to the recent raise in railroad 
rates, by a corresponding raise in salary. 

The receipt of the report here, whether true 
or not, was the cause of jubilation among show- 
folk, as it is taken that it may mean that 
other circuits will follow Pantages' example. 

Emma Haig, featured on last week's Orpheum 
bill, has evolved a new dance, entitled "The 
Coyote Lope." which bids ifar to take San 
Francisco by storm. The dance, it is said, la 
peculiarly adaptable to the ballroom, and so- 
ciety here has token it up already. 

Clay M. Greene, the playwright, has been 
placed in charge of the dramatic department 
just opened by The Journal of Commerce. The 
paper has heretofore been devoted entirely to 
commercial (and shipping news. 

"Joy Gems" scored at its opening Sunday, 
September IP. at the Casino Theater. Madie 
Da Frasne and Elizabeth Morgan open with 
a clever toe dance, in which they lead the 
famous Will King ponies. 

A. O. Boucher was a visitor at The BilPJoard 
office daring tbe week and reported good bust- 
ness. The Bcasley-Boucher Shows made a 
clcan-np at Sacramento. Boucher declared. 

Another Billboard visitor was F. J. Matthews, 
special agent for Brown's Amusement Company, 
who Is in San Francisco for a few days. Brown's 
show closes at Ladd, Id., on October 2 and 
win then proceed soatu by way of Nevada 
~atd Arizona. 

W. F. (Bo) Callleott dropped Into The Bill- 
board office during the week to annonnce his 
safe arrival from Australia after a tour of 
several months. Callicott says that he saw 
Carter the Great In Australia, and that he is 
doing well. The majority of shows, tho, Calli- 
cott says, are having anything but easy pick- 
ings and he declares that the old V. S. A. looks 
good to him.

The F. W. Babcoek Greater Shows made their 
first stand in California at Stockton, playlne 
under the auspices of the Moose and doing a 
■very large business. The shows received a flne ■ 
recommendation aa to their cleanliness (there 
being no so-called "girl shows" in the lineup) 
from the Moose to the Joaqnin County Fair, 
now being held at Stockton, and the organiza- 
tion is playing this date to excellent attend- 
ance. The fair is giving the best exhibits 
ever presented, all departments being taxed 
to the limt, and the races and special features 
are especially attractive. 

F. W. Babcock. owner, and his family are 
with the show. Mr. Babcock is so well pleased 
with his reception and patronage in this State 
that he intends keeping the show ont all win- 
ter. Chas. F. Haley is manager, C. B. Oar-

OPEN LETTERS 

(Continued from page 34) 
and my songs have always been accepted in vari- 
ous schools and also in the public libraries, yet 
whenever 1 sought to approach any of the so- 
called publishers in and around Broadway I 
hare always been treated with both, contempt 
and disrespect and always receive the same re- 
ply — ire lave our own" staff of writers and we 
won't take anything from outside writers. Yet 
by teachers in the schools and librarians songs 
and poetical works are given the most serious 
attention. The -writing of songs is the work" 
of a qualified poet, one who has shown excep- 
tional skill in this line, and let me say here 
regarding the so-called staff writer and col-' 
laboration song writer that the man who can 
not write a song without having one. two, 
three or four people to help him out has no 
right whatever to try to do work of this kind. 
Suppose Shakespeare, Milton, Burns. Goldsmith, 
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Florence Percy and other 
writers had enlisted the aid of three or four 
People to get something done, would their work 
be of any value? And altho I have written 
Ave to six hundred songs and several' volumes 
of poetry, as well as stories and plays. I have 
never required the assistance of anyone to do 
this work, because, as I have said, the man who 
can not write a song without the assistance 
of half a dozen others has no right to even 
try to do work of this kind, and it's Just this 
staff writing business that has ruined the mu- 
sic publishing business. The people doa't 
want this junk because it has no literary value 
and songs should not be published or written 
unless they have some literary value and are 
the work of one who has shown himself or her- 
self to be a qualified poet. Of course I am 
aware that the efforts of these poets will 
do no good, as the poor author has not the 
money, the time and tbe inclination to get 
his songs on the market, and unless he can get 
someone to publish his work, and it's not very 
likely that he can. his work will not get before 
the public and the market will continue to ba 
flooded with the Junk of the staff writers, , 
and that is the ^reason the music business Is) 
demoralized and ruined. I have written new 
words to all the old war and patriotic songs 
except the "Star-Spangled Banner," which I 
have set to new music. I have followed in the 
lines of Gray, Burns, Moore, Goldsmith, Foster 
and Edgar Allan Poe. I have written more 
school, patriotic and folk songs than probably 
any other man that ever lived. I wrote over 
twenty-five songs on the great war. I have 
written several hundred popular songs as well 
as a large number of fine standard ballads tbe 
equal of any that have ever been written, yet 
if I went down with any of my songs on Broad- 
way they would all say "We have our own 
staff of writers and we don't take anything 
from outside," and if you can get ont of their 
so-called publishing nouses without being actu- 
ally insulted and abused you would be very 
lucky indeed. X am not afraid to submit any 
work to a school, a college or a public library, 
but my experience in dealing with these so- 
called publishers has convinced me that one 
can not do anything with these people 
as far as getting his work published. 
He can not even retain his self-respect 
as a poet, an author or a man, and if anyone 
doubts in any -way what I have said I am in 
a position to convince them that every word 
Is true. I am in a position to give to the pub- 
lic one of tbe finest collections of school, pa-
